Do it. Best thing ever. I was a troll, now I’m a princess!



jk. no one notices, it’s changed my face because I smile and don’t worry about laughing or covering my mouth when I laugh. Wish I’d done earlier. Just buy lots of chewies and a hook to gracefully take them out

They double as whitening trays! Just ask your dentist for some professional whitening

RIP to your natural nails.

I’m doing them now, about halfway through. The first 3 days on each set of trays is uncomfortable, when you switch trays, put the new ones in at night before going to bed and the worst of it will be over before you wake up. Get some ortho wax in case you have spots that rub, and chewies to help seat the trays properly. Ice water by your side all day for those early days (Tylenol if you’re REALLY uncomfortable).

Be careful when you brush - each time you change trays, a different tooth will be most sensitive - if you use a sonic or electric toothbrush, put it on the gentle setting, if not, you may get want to switch to a child’s soft brush. And get a waterpik water flosser - SO much nicer than regular floss and keeps your teeth super-clean!

Thanks all! I just started. The hygienist gave me the tip of putting the tray on at night and I think it helped. We shall see!

Follow the instructions from your orthodontist about how often to wear them. Block out 30 minutes on your calendar everyday to eat lunch and do the follow-up flossing and brushing. It gets easier to talk with them in. Don't be freaked out. I did them in the before times and was on site at the client at least half the time. I was not the only one brushing my teeth in the office bathroom😉

Starting mine this month!

I'm doing it now. It hurts but I guess it's tolerable after a while. First set I was in tears almost. If you can do metal braces, honestly I would do it. I have to do invisalign because of missing teeth. 😥

They def hurt.. putting them on and taking them off

Doing it now. First few trays are the hardest but you will get used to the routine.

As long as you're not going with Candid you'll be making a good choice. Worst company I've ever dealt with.

Or MTM.. janky as hell

Super easy for me tbh while WFH. No pain at all totally worth it

Do it! My teeth look great and I love to smile now! Invisalign gave me so much confidence

I start a new position at a new company on Monday! Very excited. 🥳 I have many meetings set up to meet internal stakeholders, leaders, etc to get to know them as humans and their roles. It’s 100% remote/remote first and in my first 30 days I’ll be meeting ~70 people. Any suggestions about what to ask, any questions you found useful to ask that helped you understand new team mates quickly? Thank you! 😊

Seeking advice. Have been on 4 dates with a guy who seems to be into me and he always texts me first the morning after our dates. Last night we hooked up for the first time and he still texted me first today (something random about his day to get the convo going). I responded by saying “last night was fun” and then continued that other random convo. Haven’t heard from him since then and it’s been almost 7 hours. He never takes this long to respond (usually couple hours max). Should I be worried?

Hi ladies. Is it unreasonable to expect my spouse will step in to help me with meals, esp on days when am really crunched at work? He has a relatively less demanding job, while I wake up earlier than him, join meetings on video, and usually so back to back that I barely have time to eat or prep meals. While he has a lot more time in the morning. But a few times I’ve asked for help, he hasn’t. Yes, we chose our professions, but it upsets me he doesn’t feel the need to help or support me better.
