And when I say exercising, I mean hardcore, sweating-balls cardio. Spin class is fun and can be quite challenging… it is what you make of it as they say. From the beginning of my treatment, my aligners have always dried my mouth out some… so to remedy that, I usually have a bottle of water with me at all times. Cycling and breathing hard together definitely emphasize my dry mouth and I end up turning into a total mouth-breather. My lips stick to my aligners and it’s all around uncomfortable. Of course I drink lots of water, but when you’re moving around and working hard, the last thing you want to be is waterlogged.
So, unless you allot part of your “out time” for exercise, this might be one of your downfalls. I think of it this way: Exercise, stay in shape, and feel good all while working on fixing your jacked up grill… or just have a jacked up grill.
Heck, you may not even have this problem… but I wouldn’t let this be something that discourages your progress if you do.
