SpaDental patient, Laura tells us about her Invisalign journey and how it’s going:
Laura’s Invisalign journey is easier than she’d expected!
“I’ve always been paranoid about my front teeth. Whenever I went to smile I had my hands over my mouth, and I never felt confident in photos. I didn’t think I could do anything with them. And I was over the moon when my dentist suggested it.”
Laura began her Invisalign journey with SpaDental Plymouth’s dentist Diana Marcus.
Laura talked about her treatment so far: “Because Diana [Marcus] and her nurse Kathy explained each step in great detail, I knew what to expect. Diana fitted my first set of aligners and made sure I was able to put them in and take them out. They were a snug fit and I felt a slight pressure but it wasn’t at all painful.
A week later I returned for a review with Diana. I explained I was getting used to taking them in and out to eat and clean my teeth. Although I’d thought it would be difficult to manage, it just became routine. I quickly forgot I was wearing them.”
Already Laura can see results!
“When I started my No.2 set of aligners in November, I was sure my teeth were already looking better. Then at the beginning of December, I switched to the No.3 set. I was going out for a few meals with friends and thought my Invisalign would be a problem, but actually no one noticed. I could slip them out easily and I carry a toothbrush and a small mouthwash with me so I can freshen up before I put them back in.
Just before Christmas, my daughter came in while I was cleaning my teeth and said, ‘Wow, Mum! Your teeth are looking really straight!’
When I saw Diana again in January she really noticed a difference in my teeth. She’s happy that everything is going well and gave me sets 6, 7 and 8 to change at home.
I must admit, I can really see a difference already. Even with them in, I’m smiling more now than I have in years!”
