When patients visit us for orthodontic care, one of their biggest concerns is often related to their comfort. Is Invisalign treatment going to be comfortable, you may wonder to yourself? How about the process that leads up to receiving your trays? Fortunately, this orthodontic system offers exceptional comfort. For some reassurance, we would like to provide you with a Q&A session full of a few helpful details.

Questions and Answers: Invisalign

Question: Will Invisalign treatment trays cause me any discomfort as far as my soft tissues go? Will they irritate my gums, my tongue, my lips, or any other part of my mouth?

Answer: Nope. You’re not going to have metal in your mouth, which can cause some irritation. You will be wearing smooth, barely-there plastic, for minimal discomfort if any at all.

Question: Is it going to be an uncomfortable process to receive Invisalign treatment trays? How do you create them?

Answer: No, this will be streamlined and easy. We will just need to take some impressions of your smile (it’s totally pain free). We will then use these impressions as our basis for the series of trays you will use.

Question: Doesn’t it hurt to shift my teeth? Will I experience a ton of discomfort?

Answer: Fortunately, you will only experience a mild amount of discomfort, which typically occurs when you change to your next set in your series of trays. The gentle yet efficient way the trays move your teeth will result in a mostly comfortable experience. Over-the-counter pain relievers will take care of temporary issues that do arise.
