How long does it take to see results with invisalign?
With orthodontics, what we do is to move the teeth, for which there is always a microinflammation reaction in the gum, but this is only sometimes associated with discomfort and rarely with pain. There are several factors that influence the sensations experienced during orthodontics.

My experience with invisalign
Fear of pain is the main reason why we avoid visiting the dentist’s office. That same fear makes us doubt whether or not we should start a treatment to improve our smile.
We don’t want to make you more dizzy than you think, so we’ll start by clarifying that no, wearing Invisalign orthodontics doesn’t hurt. This advantage over other treatments has to do with the material from which it is made.
To reposition the teeth, Invisalign treatment uses transparent splints made to measure for each patient, which are replaced every so often to adapt them to the changes that occur in the dentition.
It hurts me a lot invisalign
With braces you have to go once a month to the office to change the rubber bands, archwires, etc. and that’s when you get the “squeeze”. All the strength is concentrated in that visit that you make once a month; and it hurts. It hurts when you eat, when you try to bite, even with very soft things.
This pressure is normal, and means that there are forces or movements on the tooth to bring them into place, but this will not prevent you from carrying out your daily activities, nor will you have to avoid certain foods or eat broth for the first few days, you will always go about your normal life! You will not have the typical wounds, sores, or swollen gums (as long as you maintain good hygiene).
You won’t feel pain and you won’t have sores either. Oh, and you will also have to give up emergencies! The biggest emergency you can have is that you lose an aligner and we solve it easily, we can take the next aligner that we have given you (or the previous one) and that’s it.
Invisalign negative reviews
Invisalign treatment is generally less painful than traditional metal braces, but patients often experience some degree of pain or discomfort during treatment with Invisalign.
In most cases, pain or discomfort will occur when the Invisalign aligners are first placed and when the aligner trays are changed, approximately every two weeks. For most, the discomfort is mild and will go away in a few days, while others may experience discomfort during treatment.
Drinking cold water can help relieve discomfort inside the mouth. Swishing with ice water can help reduce swelling and provide some relief to the tissues inside the mouth.
As with cold water, sucking on ice cubes can reduce pain. For those who experience pain after removing aligners for eating or brushing and flossing, sucking on an ice cube before and after eating or brushing teeth is a good way to relieve pain.
