In the early stages of treatment, some patients may experience some minor irritation to lips, gums and tongue as the mouth becomes accustomed to the aligners. In addition, some patients may experience a lisp when first using an aligner. The best thing to do is to practice speaking as much as possible to allow your tongue to adjust round the aligners.
As the aligners prevent saliva moving around your mouth, some patients may also develop a dry mouth and bad breath – regular water intake and daily brushing can help avoid this, as can good cleaning of your aligner.
Any orthodontic procedure of repositioning teeth will carry a certain level of discomfort. In general, Invisalign is less painful than traditional brace devices, but patients may experience soreness from both introducing the aligners to the mouth in early stages of treatment, and the ongoing pressure on the teeth. This ongoing pressure can be uncomfortable, typically heightened when a new aligner is required but which lessens with wear as the teeth begin to adjust to the new aligner.
The longevity of the results does, in part, depend on the patient. Invisalign can last a lifetime, if you change your aligners to schedule, visit your dentist regularly and wear retainers as required.
