Well It has been a solid week since I had my attachments placed. I literally bite the inside of my cheeks for the first 4 days. It was not pretty. Once when having dinner with my sister, she could hear the crunch that happened when I bit my lip from across the table. I wanted to cry and rip off my attachments, I hated eating at this point. I felt afraid to ever take my aligners out in fear that I would bite my cheeks. I religiously gargled with warm salt water and hydrogen peroxide to help aid in the healing of my missing chunks! ( sorry if this sounds so graphic) Once day 5 approached my mouth seemed to have healed nicely. My mouth was now getting used to eating with the attachments. I am now enjoying my Invisalign like I was hoping too! It was a great feeling. I am usually not one to complain, I typically adapt to change and routine fast, and was a little taken back by my negative thoughts towards my attachments. I never hear any of our patients complain about their attachments which also concerned me. I thought, am I the only one who hates these. But I'm telling you, literally after 4 days, I AM ENJOYING THESE and they have NOT become a big deal!
