Tissues getting used to attachments
If this occurs, it is usually just a situation that goes away after a few days of your tissues getting used to having something new in your mouth. Wear your aligners, which will cover the attachments and soften the feel you will otherwise notice if they are out. Rinse several times a day with a solution of 1 cup of warm water with 1/2 teaspoon of salt to soothe the inside of your lips. Take tylenol rather than advil, aspirin or aleve for any minor pain. I hope this helps.
