More Than A Pediatric Dentist

Dr. Draper and his staff at BetterDental are amazing! I brought my 7 week old baby there for a tongue and lip tie laser revision. I could not be happier with the way we were treated. Jessica, Melissa, and Maggie took their time with my baby and she was so comfortable with all of them. I would highly recommend anyone. M Watson – Apex Dentist Office

My Invisalign Journey


May 1, 2018

I had braces when I was in my late teens. Wait. I didn’t just have braces, that is an understatement. I had braces and a very complex oral surgery. After a painful oral surgery and two long years, my braces came off my teeth where beautiful. I did everything right, I wore my upper retainer for two years. I even had a permanent lower retainer that I wore for 10 years. However, over time my teeth become crooked again. At 40 years old I just couldn’t see myself in metal braces but I also couldn’t see myself continuing to have crooked teeth. The last straw was when one of my 6-year-old Sunday School student said I had “witch teeth”. I thanked her for her honesty and made an appointment with my dentist on Monday.

After my consultation with my dentist, I decided to go with Invisalign. I liked the idea of the clear plastic adjustment trays. I am an executive and I do lots of public speaking. I liked the idea that no one would notice the Invisalign. My dentist used a special machine to take a few impressions of my teeth. The impressions were sent off to Invisalign and in two weeks my first set of Invisalign trays will arrive.

May 14, 2018

I was just fitted with my first Invisalign tray. They are a little weird and I talk with a slight lisp. I was assured that this would go away in about a week as I adjusted to the treatment. I have to wear the Invisalign trays for 22 hours a day! I can’t wear them when I eat or drink anything other than water. So that gives me 2 hours a day to eat. That is going to be difficult for me because I am a “grazer”.  I feel clumsy trying to get the Invisalign trays in and out of my mouth. I can tell this will take some adjustment. I have to come back in on week to get my next 4 weeks worth of Invisalign trays. The dentist said they would add attachments to my teeth at that time. It sounds like it will be simple.
