I was away at work for two weeks without a computer but I wrote down in a regular journal:
Last night I changed my aligners at 7:30. They didn't fit snugly but today they have settled nicely. Lots of pressure on the top and bottoms. When I looked at aligner 11 compared to aligner 10 it looked so much smaller(the gap) but I didn't really notice a big difference this morning. Did notice that these squeaky clean aligners make my teeth look a whole lot whiter than those old ones. Still have that second incisor problem where you can see the aligner extending farther than the tooth does. Oh well. I don't know why I even document that anymore. Seems it is there to stay.
Flossing this morning was a treat(/sarcasm). It wasn't bad but more tender than I have had this far. It was only in on part by my bottom fang and the tooth next to it. It was a bit sore to take out the aligner in that area too since I have an attachment on that tooth.
What else new....hmm well, I was at dinner with my parents and when I took out the aligners to eat my dad was like "oh I guess I see some progress" and when I turned my head he was like "your teeth go in now." Like the opposite of an overjet(?)- top front teeth are angled ever so slightly towards my throat. I will have to ask about that when I go in for my appointment next. I also don't like some of the movements of my bottom teeth(which, with the exception of the fang I really liked before treatment). I realize that I am in the middle of this process so they are still moving.....I just don't want them to end like this. Also don't see any improvement in my mid line and i am wondering if they were even going to correct that. Blast! I wish I had my clincheck to see. If not, I will be asking for it to be at least improved when I get refinements. I bet to fix it would take.....10 or so aligners seeing how I am about half a tooth out....and I don't have that time.
And I guess on that pessimistic note, I am concluding this post. More this coming week. I will take pictures and maybe do another video or something....or maybe wait until next week when I change aligners again.....we'll see I guess.
