I am a member of the Invisalign Moms Advisory Board, and my daughter is receiving complimentary Invisalign treatment.
In my last Invisalign post I talked about how Fiona was waiting for her Invisalign trays to come in. She was really excited, and kept asking me every day if they were in. And then they were!
We went into Dr. Hung’s office and he prepared her teeth. She needed a few attachments, which are like little bumps glued onto certain teeth to help the Invisalign trays grip onto them to move them. That part was easy. She also had to have space made between a few teeth so that they had room to move. She didn’t really like that part. Basically, the doctor was flossing between those teeth with a sandpaper-like strip.
But when that was done, she got to try on her Invisalign! Another staff member worked with her to make sure she was comfortable putting them on and taking them off.
We also went over again how important it would be for her to wear her trays 22 hours a day, every day.
After we left the office we went to get something to eat. And of course she did exactly what the doctor had told her not to do: she put her Invisalign trays on a napkin on the table. So easy to throw out accidentally! I reminded her that she couldn’t do that, so she dug an Invisalign case out of her backpack and stored them properly, rolling her eyes the entire time. She’s twelve, I would expect nothing less.
She made sure to take some selfies with her new Invisalign trays, and sent them to her friends. This was an event!
I just hope that she stays this excited about it, and I hope that excitement drives her to be really good about wearing them.
