Invisalign® uses a series of soft-plastic aligners to gently move teeth into their optimal position over a period of six to 18 months. Most patients experience little to no discomfort with each progressive set of aligners, but over the counter analgesics may be helpful for a day or so after new aligners are prescribed.
Because Invisalign aligners are made of soft-plastic, they will not cut or irritate sensitive oral tissue. This makes them safe to wear even while participating in more rigorous activities. It also makes them much more comfortable overall when compared to wire and bracket braces.
