What Are the Discomforts Associated with Invisalign? Invisalign is rapidly becoming one of the most popularly requested orthodontic treatments since it offers a way to straighten teeth with minimal impacts upon a person’s daily life. Although traditional metal braces are still an option for treating an incorrect bite or closing gaps between your teeth, you may prefer the nearly invisible plastic aligner trays that you can even remove when you want to eat or drink. While there are definite benefits to using Invisalign in orthodontics, you may also be concerned about potential discomforts that are associated with the treatment. To help you make the best decision for your oral health and personal comfort, make sure you understand these common discomforts that are associated with using aligner trays for tooth straightening.
