I changed into the 17th set on Tuesday. I went in and he tried to floss my teeth and saw that it could close up more(especially the two front ones) and said to use the last 3 sets(thank god). He also said to come in when I am done and have my attatchments shaved off and when the hygenist/assistant asked "impressions?" and he said I wouldn't need any and they'd make retainers. I don't know how I feel about that. Yes, the gap is so close to being gone(WHEE!) and I am really happy with my tops but my bottoms are so uneven still(and only one more aligner on the bottom) and I will always wonder if the midline couldn't be fixed if I don't ask so when I go in I will ask him If I could correct those problems with refinements. It's possible I am being over picky, but I mean they are free so why not at least ask, right?
No pain at all on Tuesday. I even was able to pry them off about an hour after changing for lunch and it wasn't too bad. He asked me if there was a lot of pressure when I put them in in the office and surprisingly, there wasn't hardly at all. I would say the least since I started. I didn't even take an advil or anything though my teeth had that odd feeling, not pain just like irritated gums that lasted until about 11 am. I don't know if it was from them working OR if it was from me grinding at night(It is very possible). Otherwise nothing else to say.
I will take pictures this week and put them up. When I first take my aligners out the gap is gone but I do get a slight black triangle on the top so I'll have to also ask about that and maybe IPR and refinements. It is so crazy the change I can't even remember. He showed me my old pics this appointment and whoa man. The space was even bigger than I imagined.
I was even telling my roommate about them and she was asking me a lot of questions and said she is going to look into them.
