Invisalign is a great alternative to braces. Some of its benefits include a more subtle appearance, a lack of dietary restrictions, and faster overall treatment for most patients.
But while Invisalign is considered to be more comfortable than braces, the treatment can still cause you some discomfort as your teeth shift and move into the proper position. When will your Invisalign stop hurting, and how can you deal with discomfort? Find out in this guide from Brightside Family Dental.
Unfortunately, your Invisalign treatment won’t ever be completely pain-free. Because your teeth are moving to new positions, a bit of discomfort should be expected throughout the process.
There’s good news, though. Usually, this discomfort is quite minor, and lasts only for a few days after switching to a new set of aligners. Each set of aligners is worn for about 2 weeks, so this means that you won’t feel any discomfort for most of your treatment.
If you’re experiencing some pain and discomfort during your Invisalign treatment due to switching to a new set of aligners, there are a few things you can do to help mitigate the pain until it fades in a couple of days. Here are some top tips from Brightside Family Dental.
