After months of deliberation, dental impressions and consultations, I’m finally getting my Invisalign tomorrow. In addition to the other random things I post here, I’ll be documenting the process. I get them first thing tomorrow, so I’ll likely post a video soon after I put them on.
If you unaware of what Invisalign is, it’s basically a form of clear braces that are more like mouth guards that you can take out to eat and brush your teeth. You get new ones every two weeks, and they progressively move your teeth to where they should be. The idea being you don’t look like a metal mouth, and you can practice better oral hygiene.
I originally decided to get it to straighten my teeth, and after my consult realised it could close the gap between my teeth in the side of my mouth (see bottom right shot of my teeth below). I’m getting it done at a place called RiteBite, by an amazingly friendly and efficient orthodontist named Dr. Luis. Many people have documented their journey through this process in blogs and on Youtube, and I felt since I’m a social media guy and had a blog already, I should too. Look for future posts talking about the cost and answering other main questions people have.
Welcome to my journey.
For the record, I’m not being paid or compensated in any way for this blog.
