Around the first of year I posted that my teeth have moved out of alignment about 25% in the past 5 years. Quick recap: went to an adult orthodontist who said my issues look much like the issues he sees in stroke patients with facial numbness and damage (which makes sense since I often have numbness along with pain with ATN).
I started wearing Invisaline last week and am doing REALLY WELL with them. In fact, my top teeth feel better with the brace on! I’ve been wearing a lidocaine patch to help hold off any ATN flare from having my teeth pushed around and haven’t really had any pain from ATN.
Ziggy, aren’t you the one who talks about loving your mouth guard at night? Well, I’m slowly falling in love with the way Invisaline acts as a mouth guard of sorts.
