The road to a perfect smile is only 8 months and I’m excited about that. Every two week my dentist instructed me to switch out the trays. The goal is to wear the trays at least 22 hours a day excluding meal and snack times. The first day or so of wearing them was a little weird. First there was the tightness around my teeth and then the slight speech impediment.
Now no one at my job noticed that my speech sounded funny but I can hear oddly. Friends and family didn’t notice the difference either. Words that start with “s” or end with a “t” pose the most difficulty and for these words I make a conscious effort to speak clearly. Any who as my journey continues I’ll keep you ladies posted.
This is a picture of my teeth without my trays. Can you see the "anchors" onthe side of my teeth to help give the snug fit.
Here is a picture with my trays. Believe me, I have the trays on in this picture. So far no one at my job has noticed them or commented on my speech.
Do you have or know someone with invisalign?
