How to Handle Your First Week with Invisalign
When an adult has found that their teeth have shifted and become crooked, getting the Invisalign aligner system is a great way to straighten them. This system is a series of plastic trays that are worn over the teeth to move them into new positions. First, an impression needs to be made of your teeth so that the trays can be made that will precisely fit your teeth.
The trays have a tight fit. They put pressure on the teeth continuously to move them and make them straighter.
Because of this, the first week of wearing an Invisalign aligner can be difficult and even painful. It’s common for people who wear them to use over-the-counter pain relievers for the first week of using the trays. This can help to relieve the pain and make the process of getting used to them easier.
The first week of wearing them is also a time when you have to get into the habit of putting your aligner trays in and taking them out when eating. It may be hard to remember to do so for the first few days. Soon, you get into the habit of using them properly, and the straightening can get underway.
