Is It Possible to Switch from Braces to Invisalign?
Yes, you can switch from braces to Invisalign. Some patients even have a combination of braces and Invisalign to help improve their smile. If you had braces in the past and your teeth are still misaligned, Invisalign for adults can help bring your teeth back to where they belong.
Is Invisalign Uncomfortable?
Most patients who’ve transformed their smiles with Invisalign report that it is more comfortable than the metal brackets, wires, hooks, and bands of traditional braces. The plastic aligners apply gentle pressure to each tooth to move it into place.
In the beginning, you may feel slight discomfort from the pressure. This is most common during the first week of treatment or when you change to a new set of aligners.
