At his third visit we again did some minor slenderizing of the teeth with a finishing strip. We then gave him his 5th, 6th and 7th set of aligners.
You can start to see a difference between these pictures and the initial photos.
We plan on seeing him again in 6 weeks.
At the first appointment we did some slenderizing of the upper teeth (roughly 0.4mm between each one) to help alleviate the crowding and allow for tooth movement. We also placed his attachments on some of his teeth. The attachments are made of clear filling material and give the aligner something to grab onto for more difficult cases.
He started wearing his first set of aligners. Each aligner is typically worn for 2weeks. We also gave him some whitening gel and his second set of aligners and plan to see him in a month.
