In the early stages of your Invisalign treatment, some aligners can cause irritation. This is perfectly normal as your mouth adjusts to the plastic. There are a few ways to help with this discomfort:

  1. Wax – you will find this in your starter kit. Dry the aligner in the area that is causing irritation and apply a small amount of wax to the area. Make sure you warm the wax with your hands before applying.
  2. Nail File – this will also be in your starter kit. File off any rough edges.
  3. Wear it – the longer you wear the aligners, the quicker your body will adapt and the discomfort will subside.
