01 Oct Invisalign: A Feel-At-Home Experience
If you are considering Invisalign clear aligners as an option for straightening your teeth, you may be wondering how they feel and whether they are comfortable to wear. Our Whity orthodontic team can provide insights about the experience of using Invisalign aligners.
You’ll likely notice that your aligners feel snugger when you first put them on. This is because they are designed to fit tightly to your teeth to move them into their proper positions. As you continue to wear them, they may feel a little looser as your teeth start to shift.
It’s important to keep in mind that while Invisalign clear aligners may not be painful, they may cause some minor discomfort when you first start wearing them.
This is normal and usually goes away after a few days as your mouth adjusts to the new aligners. Overall, Invisalign clear aligners are generally considered a comfortable and convenient orthodontic treatment option for straightening teeth.
Adjusting to the Invisalign Clear Aligners
Keep in mind that Invisalign clear aligners do not contain any metal and are designed to be comfortable to wear. If you have any concerns about discomfort or other issues with your aligners, be sure to contact us at Taunton Orthodontics for guidance.
Speaking with Invisalign Clear Aligners
If you are experiencing temporary lisps or changes in pronunciation while using Invisalign clear aligners, it may be due to the shifting space within your mouth or an ill-fitting tray. Each tray is designed to fit securely over your teeth and guide them into the desired position for that phase of treatment. However, if a tray is not properly shaped or positioned, it could cause a lisp. If you believe this is the case, it is important to contact your orthodontist to ensure your Invisalign clear aligners are the correct size and shape. In most cases, these changes and consequences are minor and will resolve as you adjust to the aligners.
Eating with Invisalign Clear Aligners
It is essential to remove your Invisalign aligners before eating or drinking anything other than water. One of the reasons is that food particles can get stuck in the aligners and lead to tooth decay. Additionally, certain foods and drinks can discolour the aligners or cause them to smell. To maintain the health and appearance of your teeth and aligners, be sure to remove the aligners before eating and rinse your mouth with water before reinserting them.
