  1. >Hi Elizabeth,
    I'm not an orthodontist so I don't really know the answer, but that does sound uncomfortable. From what I have read it is all to do with how your moulds are taken as to how well the aligners fit. What I wouldn't do is put up with something that makes you unhappy or uncomfortable. Why don't you email your dentist with a link to my pics and an explanation of what is wrong with yours. I would at least speak to him/her about it as it sounds like that wouldn't be great in your job. Mine reach my gums all around I think (just had a quick look in the mirror!) and I can see exactly what you mean that it would be uncomfortable otherwise.
    I would definitely talk to your provider. Maybe they need to do better moulds.
    I'm really sorry that I can't help more. One tip I have is that if you go on the braces review or archwired forums there are orthodontists that occasionally post there. You could ask a question with pictures and see if one of them responds. Other users might also be able to tell you whether they have the same issue.
    Let me know how you go. Good Luck.

  2. >HI
    Im on the first week of my second aligner. I looked at your pics of your teeth with your aligners in and noticed that your aligners reach all the way to your gums. My trays don't reach to my gums in the top front. there is about a 2 or 3 millimeter gap from where the aligner ends and my gums begin. makes the aligners very visible and makes it virtually impossible to avoid lisping – which sucks because i am a waitress. Do you think I should ask for a new set of trays? will that cost me more money?

  3. >Glad to see you updating again. Missed you posts while you were away! Like I've said elsewhere, I'm sure your teeth will look fabulous by the time you're done, they look great already!
