Taquana “Tabby” Sears, a Charlotte Dentistry® patient, has agreed to share her Invisalign® experience with us on a regular basis. For the last several months, she’s given us reports on how she’s doing with Invisalign®, including ups and downs. Below is her latest blog entry.
I am pleased to say I picked up my last 3 trays during my last dental visit. So, my 18-month Invisalign® ride is coming into the home stretch. It looks like I have just about 6 weeks left!
This has been an incredible ride! It has been a joy seeing my smile change with each set of trays. I’m so pleased when I look in the mirror at how straight my smile has become.
Through this journey, I’ve learned some valuable things about my teeth and myself. I’ve learned to be disciplined in my choices. No matter how much I wanted to remove my trays during the day, remembering they’re not working if they’re not in my mouth, made me more willing to keep them in my mouth as much as possible! AND the results show that it does work.
I’ve learned to make healthier, smarter choices about the foods I eat. I hardly ever snack on “junk food” during the day. The sugary beverages are gone. Did you realize that drinking a soft drink was the equivalent of giving your teeth a sugar bath?!? The Invisalign® trays fit snugly so it’s very important to stay away from sugary snacks and drinks. No one wants cavities!
