lilo and scrump

Ouuch

When I went for my Invisalign appointment three weeks ago, the tech mentioned to me that if by the second week it is really easy to pop my trays on and off, then I can move up to switching once a week, instead of once every other week. I did two weeks with the third set of trays, but I did notice that there wasn't much pressure after the first week. So I called up the orthodontist after I switched to the fourth set (two weeks) and the person I talked to said to switch to the fifth after one week and see how that goes.



So since I could get the fourth set on easily again after a week, I switched to the fifth trays yesterday. Ouch. This is what the pressure of the trays should feel like. My lower tooth that sticks out a bit is certainly not happy today. But it's still not as bad as the pain with the first set. So we'll see what happens next week.
