Is Getting the Invisalign Painful?

You might have some discomfort at the beginning or every time you change the aligners.
Then you should be fine.
Compared To Braces: Invisalign is "Piece of Cake"
Compared to braces, Invisalign is the ultimate in comfort. However, you are still moving teeth with Invisalign and with tooth movement come a little soreness. Also, initially the aligners will be a little tight.

Invisalign is very gentle
While there may be SOME discomfort, it is very minor. Teeth will move if pressure is applied, so with the pressure there will be a response. Most people report very little discomfort with Invisalign.
Invisalign and Pain
Invisalign may cause discomfort when the first aligners are placed, but discomfort is different than pain! Invisalign is painless. There is discomfort when the teeth begin to move as there would be with traditional braces. Braces, with the metal and brackets cause gum irritation where the clear aligners do not. I would highly recommend invisalign esthetically as well! Hope this helps!
Invisalign is Painless
Invisalign is painless, there's no injections of novocaine and no drillng. The first time you insert a new aligner will always be a bit tight, so you'll feel some pressure. You may also require some of polishing between your teeth. Polishing is not painful. Lastly, small "bumps" may be bonded onto your teeth called "attachments" to help aligners get traction and move your teeth a bit faster. This is painless as well. Best of luck with your Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign is very gentle
You may experience very minor tightness, but no pain is associated with clear aligner orthodontics.
You will love the experience and really love the results!
Is getting Invisalign painful
Getting braces or Invisalign is never painful!....but, when the teeth start to move with either appliance, they get sore....nothing that advil or tylenol can't handle however. The big advantage of Invisalign is that the aligners are smooth and you don't have the gum irritation that braces cause at the beginning of treatment
Invisalign is not painful
Getting invisalign is not painful. When the trays are first put in, there will be some tightness as there is pressure on your teeth. Your teeth may be a little sore from the movement, but it is not painful.
