Tomorrow I put in my second set of INVISALIGN BRACES. I have to admit that the first few days were rough. The pain honestly wasn’t all that bud but the fact that my mouth seemed to be in continuous turmoil was the issue. I felt the constant need to want to pull out the braces and relive that pressure that was being applied to my teeth.
By day three all of the irritation seemed to be gone. The only thing at this point that i find to be annoying is the amount of work and discomfort required to remove the braces and the amount of time I feel like i’ve spent cleaning them over the past few weeks. I initially had the idea that the Invisalign would be ideal because they can be moved in and out of my mouth at will. But, it’s a giant pain in the butt! The bright side of everything is that I don’t have to worry about ungodly amounts of mindless snacking.
Overall the experience has been nothing like what I thought it was going to be (please note above). I would never go back and change my mind. I would consider the option of standard braces a little more than though. I know that the pain is worse, the scarring is a bit more permanent, and your food options at time can be limited but at least you never have to take the darn things out!
