Does Invisalign Hurt?

Pressure but No Pain

Does Invisalign hurt? Invisalign doesn’t cause pain but it can be uncomfortable for a day or two when you put in a new tray. Invisalign moves teeth by applying pressure with the clear aligner trays. For many patients, that pressure feels like a dull ache or throbbing when teeth first feel it. Expect mild discomfort when you start a new tray. Some patients choose to take a small dose of ibuprofen or acetaminophen on the first day that they switch trays because they don’t want to feel that pressure.

“But It Hurts Like A Killer Toothache!”

If your Invisalign seems to be causing actual pain, there is something wrong with a tooth or teeth or your gums. Invisalign doesn’t stop you from have tooth infections or sensitive nerves. If you experience intense pain while in Invisalign, call your dentist. Chances are that you need to be seen for a tooth problem.

Designing a Lingual Retainer


  • This is a great place, if your looking definitely choose them. The staff is always helpful and everyone is so nice. Best place to have your dental work done ๐Ÿ˜

  • I came to my initial consultation wondering why a consultation was necessary - and I was blown away by the level of care. From the initial phone call, to the waiting room and staff experience, to the consultation and proceeding X-rays - everyone was wonderful. Dr. Bec and staff are incredible, and far exceeded any expectations that I had. Dr. Bec is welcoming, honest, transparent, thorough, detailed, and took the time to go over every single aspect of our teeth, as well as concerns/solutions. His staff is very kind and attentive also. (Even the music in the waiting room is lovely!) The amount of time and care was amazing, as I'm used to being shuffled in and out. I very rarely leave reviews. But this is one place I will review, and I do struggle to understand how anyone could give Precision Cosmetic Dentistry a negative review.

  • This was by far the best dental experience I have ever had! Dr Bec treated me with genuine care as a person, not just as a potential customer and explained very thoroughly all of the expectations for becoming his patient. He also was very patient and answered all of my questions and some more ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm very happy with my first visit there (all the receptionists were wonderful as well and everyone made me feel like family). I feel like I have found a gem in the dentist industry and I look forward to continuing with Dr Bec!

  • So as a first time patient with Dr. Bec, I fully appreciated his honesty, his professionalism, friendliness and patience with or towards me. The whole office experience was excellent. All the ladies I encountered were professional and nice.

  • We were very pleased with the service my husband received. Dr Bec was able to complete the repairs he needed. All the office staff is fabulous!
