Nearly half way!!!!!! Can you feel my excitement oozing through the screen?
It’s been same-old, steady as she goes for a few weeks. Teeth are sore the morning after I change my aligners. No matter how much I file down those suckers, my tongue still manages to get cut after a day’s worth of talking. To be fair, though, I talk A LOT.
But something new did happen! For the first time, someone noticed my teeth looking straighter. A friend of mine who I haven’t seen in a few weeks randomly (and unprompted) said that she can see a change in my teeth.
I didn’t take a picture of my week one (dumb, yes), but my orthodontist has them. Anyway, here is a comparison of week 6 to today:
Week 6 Week 10
I am completely used to them now. I actually had the insane thought this week: what will I do when this is over?
I go in next week for “spacing,” which the hygienist described as oh, he takes sandpaper and files down your front teeth. Awesome. Count me in.
