Experience Less Discomfort Than With Metal Braces
Although no orthodontic treatment comes without some discomfort, Invisalign comes with less discomfort than the leading orthodontic treatment. With metal braces, you can easily scratch and cut your cheeks, tongue, or lips on your brackets. With Invisalign however, the aligners are made with a smooth plastic that won’t cause you any discomfort or scratches on your skin.
It’s also less uncomfortable as your teeth shift through your mouth. Instead of large movements every six weeks, you switch Invisalign aligners about every two weeks for small movement increments. This results in less pain and discomfort throughout your treatment.
