Hello friends! Today's post is a little bit different than my usual fashion norm because today we are touching base with Dr. Yana and my...Invisalign! So a little update on my progress I am currently wrapping up tray number 9. Can't believe I'm already here- just a testament to how fast time flies.
I am ecstatic to report that I am so happy with the results so far! Since I knew this was going to be a process, I didn't bother much with checking any noticeable differences with my teeth. Too soon I thought- well I thought wrong. I saw a big improvement in my bottom teeth and to this day am still shocked at how quickly that occurred.
So last time we discussed lifestyle changes including the non-existence of guilty pleasure snacking. Well that is still happening. I can't tell you how many times I've passed on a tasty treat, cupcake, or general deliciousness because I didn't want to fuss with my Invisalign. And surprisingly, it hasn't been challenging at all. The thing that has been more tough for me is dealing with liquids! Water is your friend- everything else is not. If you've followed me for a while you know that I am a self-proclaimed wino. Red please.
As far as any pain, the only time I experienced any discomfort was tray number 6. That one was definitely tight on the first day. But it's a good sore- kind of like when you go to the gym and are sore the next day but you know that just means you did something right. Am I right?!
Another point to mention is my level of overall comfort with Invisalign. You definitely may feel a little self-conscious when around other people. I used to fight the urge to take it off when in social settings. Now I don't mind literally at all. I can speak without a lisp and the bulkiness is pretty much non existent.
Lastly, going to the dentist is never high up on anyone's priority list. Let's face it, it's not the most enjoyable experience. But I kid you not when I say I look forward to visits with Dr. Yana. Reason number one out of a million is that she exclusively treats Invisalign patients. This means no needles, drills, numbing creams, or any other cringe worthy dentist delights. 100% non invasive! And can we talk about how beautiful her office is?! Something I learned is that all Invisalign runs about the same price. So if you can have your experience with this kind of ambience- it's kind of a no-brainer!!
But most importantly she is incredibly kind and personable. Everyone that works with her is equally upbeat and informative which makes each visit dare I say- FUN.
I am so excited to keep taking the steps towards a great smile. If you have a similar story to me or simply have questions concerning Invisalign or Dr. Yana's practice, please feel free to email me or comment below!
