3. It’s Comfortable
When you’re wearing something in your mouth for almost the entire day every day, of course, you want it to feel comfortable. With metal braces, they’re not always comfortable. Especially in the first few weeks of treatment while your lips and cheeks get used to the rough feeling of sharp metal. With Invisalign, you won’t experience much discomfort throughout your treatment. First off, the clear plastic aligners are made with a smooth plastic that is comfortable to rest against your cheeks and lips. You won’t have to worry about accidentally cutting your tongue or suffering from painful sores.
In addition, moving your teeth with Invisalign is much more comfortable than with other treatments. This is because Invisalign moves the teeth in small increments during shorter periods rather than larger increments in longer periods. For example, about every two weeks, you will switch your aligners to a new set. From there your teeth will slightly adjust before moving onto the next set and so on and so forth.
