They called this morning and said the aligners were in and asked if I could come in like 2 hours after they called. Luckily I didn't have my usual lab this morning and could.

So I will have 7 more on top and bottom and no attachments(they gave me 4 for now). I don't know how the tooth will be brought down without attachments but I am not the ortho/invisalign tech person so we'll see I guess.

These fit my teeth a lot better(still not perfect though. Maybe I'll take pictures this weekend).

The packaging date says the 4th of November so I guess they weren't as fast as usual. Oh well though. I am just happy to finally have them. The old ones are so gross now that it is nice to put on nice fresh ones(without the indents for the attachments too!)

No pain at all. They were really easy to put in. I can actually feel a difference with my back molar already(it wasn't touching the other molar well(only on the inside was it touching and now it's more even). Front teeth felt a little weird when I took them off for the first time but other than that no pain, hardly any pressure and I will report back if something eventful happens before I change next.

I'm going in for a consultation next Friday and I really can't wait.

May I ask you a question though? How many weeks did it take for your gap to close? I'm really self conscious about mine.

It took from the 23rd of January 2008 until September(but the aligner has made it look like I haven't had a gap in awhile. Sometime this summer it already looked like I was gap free while wearing the aligners).

I hope your consultation goes well!
