A picture speaks a thousand words- you know the old cliche… so I thought I would confine this post mostly to pictures. These are photos of my teeth before I started treatment and after 28 sets of Invisalign braces. I have one more upper refinement before I have finished with this run and I have 6 more lowers before we attempt to move my stray tooth over. You can now see just how horrendous my upper crown looks (next to my front tooth on the left) having moved. Fortunately when my trays are in it hides it to a great extent… I will get it fixed as soon as I am otherwise happy with my upper arch.
It’s interesting looking at the pictures of my aligners themselves just how my upper arch has rounded out, and also how the bottom arch has moved forward on the right hand side, but not yet on the left (where we are making room for that stray tooth.)
Let me know if you have any comments. I will be returning to my orthodontist in a couple of weeks to discuss what else I would like done to my upper arch- any suggestions gratefully received! Of course, I will keep you updated with more Invisalign before and after pictures as I take them..
It’s slow progress, but I think (and hope) it’s worth it!
