INVISALIGN: A (MOSTLY) LOVE STORY WEEKS 20-21 (TRAY 10!)

I feel like I am on the home stretch. I also feel like getting an extra week in with my trays helped me out a lot. Tray 10 eased onto my teeth with no problem.

I also have a confession. I jumped five trays ahead to sneak a peek at my last tray (14) before refinements. Wow, do my teeth look straight in the end. I sure hope they fit in those trays. This week, I offer a retrospective look at my first 18 weeks with aligners, in numbers.
