Horrible Tooth Sensitivity, Bad Taste - Clarksville, MD

I'm on tray 4 of 27 and just recently had the buttons put on some of the teeth. Since then I've had horrible gum sensitivity to both cold as well as warm foods/drinks. If I breathe through my mouth the air (room temp) hurts my gums. The glue for the buttons ended up all over the teeth that had them; I'm guessing some went under the gumline and that's what accounts for the sensitivity. I'm not sure how they are going to get this stuff off later (have seen other reviews where they have to grind it off) but I'm having doubts that it will relieve the gum sensitivity and not sure it will ever come out from under my gumline. Actually, I suspect my gums will have receded by then.


Also, you're supposed to wear them 22 hours a day. Which means you have to brush and floss your teeth immediately after every meal, and can't drink or eat anything in between. Plus wear them at night.

Wish I hadn't gotton them. Bottom line: don't get Invisalign.

Sorry to hear that you aren't liking the invisalign. Have you considered switching to traditional braces? If you are really unhappy with what you are experiencing maybe they just aren't the right form of treatment for you? It might be worth discussing with your dentist/orthodontist.

Keep us posted on what you decide to do.

Am now on Tray 7. Tooth sensitivity has gotten better, but there is a frequent bad, plastic taste in the mouth which makes one wonder what chemicals are leaching out of these trays and being ingested (and yes, I clean them religiously; I started on these yesterday so they're new). Each try is worn for 2 weeks, and sometimes before the 2 weeks are done there will be a piece of the tray edge that starts curling and poking your gums or cheek, which is irritating.
