Bite with Invisalign

It is a normal feeling. Do not be worry. The bite will come back to normal after a couple of aligners.

Invisalign moves teeth and changes happen to the bite also

You seem to be just starting the invisalign procedure and are feeling that with the first set of aligners, your bite feels off and different. It is normal for braces or invisalign to make your bite feel off since you are moving teeth .  The muscle tension will ease up once your teeth have shifted within that tray, usually, after the first week or so. Your trays are new to you and may be causing you to clench and grind, which causes muscle tension as well. In a couple of weeks it should be feeling more natural . Give it some time!  Good luck and always talk to your treating doctor about any problem you may be experiencing!

Bite changes with Invisalign

Any type of orthodontics (wire or aligners) will change your bite. Sometimes it gets worse before it gets better. This may be the case for you. I suggest that you see your dentist to confirm that your teeth are moving as planned. If your dentist is comfortable with your progress, then I would say everything is normal.

Invisalign can make your bite feel different

Hi- Invisalign can make your bite feel different as you are now biting on the aligner surface. Your bite will be changing as your teeth move. Having not seen your case it is hard to comment on your bite being way off and the future of your invisalign treatment.  You should ask your invisalign doctor about this as well as ask him/her to show you the invisalign movie of how your teeth started and how they are going to finish.
