What to expect after fitting
After your aligners have been fitted, one of our dental assistants will show you how to take our and replace your aligners, as well as tips and tricks for keeping them clean. When you first get fitted with your Invisalign® clear aligners, you may notice a slight change in your speech. If you practice talking (or singing!) with your aligners in, your speech will quickly improve as you get used to them.
You may notice some tightness or discomfort in the first couple days of using a new set of aligner trays. This is normal and will subside after a few days as your teeth shift into their new positions.
If you find that your aligner has rough edges near the gum line, you can gently file them with an emery board. Avoid filing too much though, as the aligners have creases, bumps, and ridges that have been purposely placed there to guide your teeth into proper alignment.
