It’s a been a good while since my last Invisalign update! I finished my treatment a few months ago and am now wearing retainers to ensure that my teeth stay lovely and straight. I opted to go for permanent retainers (bonded to the back of the teeth) as well as the removable, plastic retainer that is very similar to the aligners. You wouldn’t notice the permanent one at all, I didn’t experience a lisp after having it applied and I quickly forgot it was even there. I did, however, get a fairly bad lisp for the fist few days wearing the removable retainer; It’s a lot thicker than the aligners and comes back a little further onto the palate. Luckily, I only had to wear it full time for three months and now only wear it at night.

I am delighted with the results. If you want to check out the before and after pics you can see them on Clearbraces Facebook page, I never took pictures of my teeth before getting Invisalign but I always have a big cheesy grin in photos now.

I’ve been doing a bit of whitening since finishing my treatment and it’s been making a huge difference, I’ll write up a post soon on how I’ve been maintaining it. In the meantime you can catch up on all my other posts on my Invisalign treatment here.
