It's been a while I know.. Sorry! Well here goes Tray 12 - 15 went smoothly. I am having alot of swelling along the gum line above the gap. This was to be expected since there was so much space to close. I decided that I was going to ask Dr. Zammitti about it at my next appointment, which was January 14th.
During my visit he expressed his pleasure in how my teeth were coming along & checked to see if the recommended IPR on my lower teeth would be necessary. He decided that it wasn't because I still had minor space. I asked about the swelling gum tissue and he stated that he can laser the area once I finish treatment. I'm completely game for that. I've put way to much money into having a "nice smile" to deal with swollen gum tissue. The goal of invisalign was for me to have the smile that I want and swollen gums are not in that equation.
I put on Tray 16 and all I can say is WOW what a difference between Tray 1 and now. It's an amazing feeling knowing that tray 19 is the LAST tray for my bottom teeth. Woo Hoo! There is another massive difference between tray 16 and 20. I'm almost at the end of this life long journey & I can't wait. I still stick by my previous statement which was purchasing invisalign was one of the best decisions that I've ever made.
