Like you’re not sick of this stuff already. There are not nearly enough posts about this on the internet, so I’ll just another one!

The big day is tomorrow, apparently! Woohoo! It’d be cool to actually see something happen. Maybe not dying, but like a comet falling into an ocean or something. No harm is being wished upon anyone! Everyone who has a bomb shelter or whatever kind of shelter, hop on in there! Hope you have enough oxygen to make it!

If I don’t wake up tomorrow, well, neither will any of you. And I’ll also be pissed for spending so much time and money on education. AND on my invisalign treatment! What a rip off…if not, back to work all you slackers!

I, will be enjoying a day of some gaming, relaxation, eating left over birthday cake (from my mom’s birthday today), and generally wasting away whatever is left of my month long vacation from school! Oh and decorating the Christmas tree! That shall be fun!

Have a good doomsday everyone!


Invisalign: Tray 35!

AAAH! I’m almost done!!! At least with the initial set of trays. My ortho says everything looks great, the aligners are fitting perfectly. She had me put in my tray 35’s and gave me the rest (36-38)!.

She gave me some awesome info about the treatment process. Apparently the back teeth are not going to be together (when you bite down) after you take the retainers out because the extra plastic of invisalign pushes them down. But after the invisalign treatment is over, they’ll move back out to their designated position.

I was also told that my next appointment would probably require another impression of my teeth so that they could send away for another set just to refine how the teeth sit. I don’t know how many sets of trays that will take, but hopefully not a lot. This actually made sense to me because I had heard about refinement trays (or something, I forget what they were called), to really “fine tune” your perfect teeth. The ortho told me that 9 times out of 10 this is necessary, but sometimes it’s not needed and you just get a retainer to wear overnight. We’ll see what happens!

I am totally beyond psyched to have this process be so close to over! It felt like it would take forever, but now it feels like it went by really fast!

I’ll keep you posted! Next pics you see will probably be in my final trays =). Hope you’re as excited as I am!

Invisalign Tray 34: Pain

I have officially experienced a new level of excruciating pain. The first and only time I actually woke up in the night because of the pain…holy crap, this really hurts. I popped a tylenol, but just couldn’t take the pain, so got up and took out my aligners.

So beware: pain will be experienced!
