How long does the tooth soreness last??
- 6 months ago
I am on the second week of my first set of invisalign trays. Change the on Tuesday to the second set.....not really looking forward to it. At first the pain and soreness was unbearable and started question why I even went through with braces. My cheeks and tongue were really cut up from the sharp edges and attachments for elastics in future trays. I was able to read on a few different forums about filing down the sharp edges. I initially filed very little because I was concerned with ruining the tray. After putting up the pain for a few more days...I decided to file more this time. That was the best decision I could have made. I was no longer dealing with the sharp edges and my mouth had healed from the sores. Life was looking brighter with invisaligns :) MMy treatment is a total of 30 Trays which is a total of 18 months. I have a 100% overbite and spacing issues. Definitely looking forward to the end of treatment and super excited to see the final results. I was not informed about these refinement trays I keep hearing about.....Not impressed about it at all!I so glad I stumbled upon a forum where many people are having the same issues that I am having. Its a good feeling not to be alone!
