Does Invisalign Hurt by Richardson, TX dentist Dr. Nish Kapadia.
Does Invisalign Hurt?
Initially there’s a little soreness, just like with any orthodontics. The trays are rigid trays that apply a little pressure to your teeth to help move them in the right position. When you first put those trays in, you’re going to feel that pressure which can cause a little soreness on the teeth. And that usually resolves in a day or two.
Those trays usually keep for about two weeks. You keep that one tray in for about two weeks. At the end of that two-week time, you’re probably not feeling any pressure or discomfort. And at that time, we change out to a new set of trays.
When that new set is first put in, you’re going to feel that pressure again and possibly have a little bit of soreness again, but that’s about it.
Our Response To Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Although the Governor has rescinded the mask mandate, as a Dental Office we are subject to protocols of the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners (TSBDE). The TSBDE has not lifted its COVID 19 emergency protocols, so masks are still to be worn by patients and staff in the dental practice. We will be continuing all of our COVID safety protocols and respectfully request all patients, staff and vendors wear a mask in our office. Thank you for helping us keep the safest environment possible for our patients and staff.
