I made it. Scratch that… All of it.
Sweet! I’m wearing my second set of Invisalign! With about, oh let’s say, 3-4 days left in set one I wanted to switch to set two. Why? Well let me tell you. Ah-hem. Set one felt like, well, it felt like it wasn’t doing anything. The upper and lower fixtures came out so easily — meaning they weren’t pulling, etc. anymore.
Out, out damn fixture! I succeeded where Lady MacBeth failed. Sucker. Er…
I put in the second set at 9pm the morning before I was technically supposed to put them in. The result? No worries. It was tight and it felt like something was happening again. I smiled a big Invisalign smile. It didn’t look like this =D but it would if you could see the Invisalign inside that capital d.
Key point to note regarding the removal of Invisalign. I have found it easiest to remove the fixtures from the back. But not just ‘the back’ mind you. Oh no, no, no, no, no.
When removing each fixture I try to lift from the inside back thereby relieving stress from the buttons. When I remove a fixture from the outside back I feel the teeth with buttons much more.
I spoke with someone yesterday about getting my Invisalign process sent to me in video format and was told that I was the first one to ever ask for it. How can this be? Yikes! The rep I spoke with advised me that she’d call and verify if it could be given out.
According to my research it can be but why aren’t they promoting it? It’s nothing but great PR. And so my job at SLC (instrutional technologist) and life met once again. Hopefully I’ll have the a video or two… or three later on today. Sweeeeet.
And on a closing note – Congratulations United States of America and Barack Obama!
