Brace Face: Tray 28

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I had my final appointment for phase 1 of my Invisalign.

And yes, I need more trays. 28 wasn't enough, apparently.

I knew I was going to need more. I can physically see where one tooth on the bottom didn't rotate enough. But my dentist said that there is also an issue with how my jaw lines up in the back, where I can't see. So there's that.

My dentist switched practices and my appointment on Tuesday was her first day. She hasn't had a chance to get all of her ducks in a row yet, so she needed to contact Invisalign to get her stuff. She's going to call me when I can come in and get more molds taken, which will then be sent off to see how many trays I will need for this next phase, which they call the "Refinement" stage.

I am disappointed. I can't pretend that I'm not. But all of this is already paid for with my original investment, so I suppose we should just keep going until it is right, right? Right.

For now, she took all of the buttons off my teeth (I will need to get new ones on with the new set of trays). I have about a month of freedom before I will have to get this party started again. I am wearing my last tray, tray #28, at nighttime only right now.

So here are my final pictures from Phase 1 of my treatment. I am very happy with how things look.
