Managing Sore Teeth with Invisalign

Sore Mouth Marietta GA

Though wearing Invisalign aligners in Marietta, Georgia is more comfortable than traditional metal braces, you may still experience some occasional discomfort. A common complaint is the soreness of Invisalign from the pressure your teeth feel when they’re moving. There may even be a spot on your tray that’s rough and bothers your tongue, or inside of your lip.

How To Handle Discomfort from Invisalign

To relieve Invisalign discomfort you can try the following tips:

Pain medicationThe first couple of days of every new pair of aligners is when your teeth may be sore. While the discomfort will go away on its own soon enough, you may want to take some ibuprofen for fast relief.

Visit your Marietta dentist – If there is a sharp or rough spot on your aligner that’s rubbing the inside of your cheek, then come in for us to adjust that area for you.  Don’t attempt to do any alterations yourself, as you could ruin the aligner and cause it not to work properly.

Using dental wax – If you can’t make it to the dentist right away, then placing some dental wax over the rough areas can protect your mouth.

Eating soft foods – During the first couple of days of each new set of aligners, you should eat soft foods that don’t require a lot of pressure while chewing.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
