When wearing Invisalign there should not be any pain while wearing the Invisalign and if you do experience pain when wearing the Invisalign then you should tell your dentist about it so they can correct the issue.

However after wearing the Invisalign it can leave your teeth feeling sore for awhile but there should not be significant teeth pain when you remove the Invisalign.

Also the Invisalign may make your teeth or mouth feel a bit uncomfortable until you get used to it just like with braces.

If you don't wear your Invisalign for a day then your teeth can revert back to the position they were in which would defeat the purpose of the Invisalign in the first place.

Then when you try to put the Invisalign back in you could experience some pain from it.

Always wear your Invisalign for at least 22 hours per day and continue wearing the Invisalign until your dentist says you no longer need to wear it.

Most people who wear Invisalign wear the Invisalign for between 12 months to 18 months.

The actual time that a person needs to wear Invisalign can vary from person to person but most wear the Invisalign for 18 months and then they can stop wearing it.

The dentist who you get the Invisalign from and installed will determine exactly how long your treatment will take based on your specific needs.

The Invisalign treatment time takes between 12 to 18 months to see full results from the Invisalign treatment but you should start seeing some results from the Invisalign within a few weeks of beginning to wear the Invisalign.

If you remove the Invisalign before the dentist says to then the treatment won't work.

You will need to wear your Invisalign for at least 22 hours per day for the Invisalign to be effective but the more you wear the Invisalign the better.
