Today I FINALLY received my Starter Trays!
If you are confused here: https://faithengen101.wordpress.com/2015/04/09/straighten-teeth-at-home-for-less-than-half-of-invisalign-wait-what/
Anyways, above is the tray itself. A sort of thin very hard plastic. The first picture also shows the syringe of clinical strength whitening gel they sent free with my order. I just shoot it into my trays and carry on badadong!
Any who. I also have these little yellow “Chewies” which I am currently chewing. I LOVE them. Dude you kinda feel like you’re teething all over again and they did NOT have these when I was growing up with metal braces. They help relieve the tooth achiness and help your aligners clip to your teeth more securely. I highly recommend using them.
The Starter Trays main purpose is to get you familiar with the pressure on your teeth. People who have previously had metal braces, think of when you had to get your wires tightened. For the next couple of days your teeth were sore and tender. Same thing happens when you first pop in these puppies. They feel pretty tight (Which hello, it means they are working) and after a couple hours your teeth will ache.
Okay couple of things folks. Do NOT drink or eat anything but water with these in. Coffee and tea will stain the trays. Also nothing hot must touch these. They are plastic after all. I have quickly learned, within less than 24 hours, that I will be eating much less. For one to take them out to eat is slightly annoying and 2 my teeth HURT dude. No I really do not want to bite into this apple with my sore teeth…ugh but you need that energy to get through your kickboxing workout in a few minutes…fine -_- Yea. #reallife
I don’t think I told ya’ll but I will have 20 Trays to wear about 3 weeks a piece. We are looking at 14 months for $1400. versus $6000 through an orthodontist??? Yes please. Fix my two front buck teeth you Smile Care Club you!!
