Confession: I never wore my retainers when I was younger. Punishment: My teeth revolted and strayed away from the correct position. Solution: Invisalign.
That is right...I am a nerd. I have being doing the whole Invisalign thing and have seen major improvement. My teeth have never been that bad...they just have a tendency to get too close together since they are on the larger side (hence the middle school nickname of Mr. Ed - Kids are cruel). In reality, I probably didn't NEED Invisalign so I guess it was more of a preventative measure. Anyway, today was supposed to be my last day to actually wear them but the dentist thinks I need a little more time. Damn. Don't get me wrong - this is a fabulous alternative to traditional braces. They don't hurt and you can't even see them. One more month or so is all it will take...I can't wait!
