Does Invisalign Hurt?

Now, more than ever before, we have more choices for cosmetic dentistry solutions. One of the popular newer technologies is Invisalign. Invisalign is an alternative to traditional braces and retainer solutions when it comes to straightening your teeth. The aligners are clear and so are almost impossible to see when you look in the mirror – so they can be far more aesthetically pleasing than traditional braces.

The cost of Invisalign is comparable to braces. However, you’ll need to check with your private health insurer to see how much the out of pocket expenses will be. With 20 years on the market, Invisalign offers a proven system to help people all around the world achieve a straighter smile.

Other considerations to take into account include your present dental condition and how long it will take for treatment. When using Invisalign, you’ll be required to come in for adjustments, alterations, or to be given new sets of aligners, every few weeks, so that your teeth keep moving in the right direction. This is a relatively simple process as the Invisalign system is easily removed from your mouth, unlike braces.

Invisalign is also a less painful alternative to braces. With each Invisalign adjustment, it will be a little sore, as your teeth adjust to having the system in place, and as they start to move. You can take them off when you eat or have a drink and then you’ll have to put them right back on. Good news is the majority of patients that get Invisalign adjust to it very quickly.

The main thing to remember about Invisalign is that it’s going to be a lower-pain alternative to braces. This doesn’t mean to say that you’re not going to experience some soreness while wearing them, but generally it will be less than conventional braces and you’ll feel more comfortable a day or two after new aligners are put in. If you experience pain when wearing Invisalign, you can use pain relief such as Paracetamol or Iboprufen to help deal with the temporary annoyance.
