Snug. Tight-fitting. Doing their job. No, not Kylie Minogue’s hot pants, but my new Invisalign retainers! My apologies for the delay since my last blog, i have been sunning myself in the Algarve, pretending to be Cliff Richard with my newish teeth, speedos and linen shirt. The weather was a little offish, but not enough to dampen spirits or the local ”vino tinto” for that matter.
Just to fill you in, my visits to the surgery are now further apart, where i visit and Derek checks everything and gives me my new trays. Firstly i had 4 weeks worth(2 sets) but now i am on 6 weeks worth of trays( 3 sets), so this means i will not be visiting for another month.
So whats been happening? i have just continued with my procedure, spacing my meals to suit the removal of the trays. It had really worked well for me, but as my friend Lucy van Staden advised, i am starting to get quite efficient at speedy removal, to allow for the odd treat. To put things simply, i have been snacking occasionally in between. This has no affect on the trays. Every single set i have put in, have been incredibly well made and fit perfectly. Once again, on Friday i put in my new trays and got that strangely satisfying “snug” feeling. Uncomfortable at first, but after 20 minutes the ache subdues. This uncomfortableness reassures you that the trays are pushing/puling those teeth extra gently into the required position. I love it! I have definitely noticed that both lower and upper teeth have moved considerably, to which i am really pleased.
My wife is bored of my Invisalign prowess…Whenever people ask me what the procedure involves, she looks at me, rolls her eyes and says “ oh no, here we go again!”. I do not care, for i am proud to be the ambassador of the white teeth wonder. I feel like Angelina Jolie working for Unicef. i will not however, be having the surgery’s coordinates tattooed on my arm. Love the Facebook updates Derek!!!
