Invisalign is supposed to be a little tight especially in the beginning.

This is to allow the Invisalign to align your teeth but overtime the Invisalign should become a bit looser but if they are too tight then it could be a problem.

during the first week of Invisalign the first week of Invisalign is the worst.

During the first week of Invisalign it's normal to experience some discomfort and sometimes some pain but after the first week the discomfort should start going away and the longer you wear it the better it gets.

It's okay to skip a week of wearing Invisalign as long as you've been wearing the Invisalign for at least a few months.

If you've only been wearing the Invisalign for a month then you should not skip a week of Invisalign because it can then allow your teeth to shift back and you'll have to start over again.

20 hours per day can be enough for Invisalign but for best results it's better to wear the Invisalign for 22 hours per day.

Then take it off for a few hours during the day.

Your teeth can shift out of place if you don't wear Invisalign 22 hours a day and then you'll have to start all over again and it will take longer for your teeth to align properly.

Invisalign works to align your teeth by gradually and slowly moving your teeth.

It's a slow process and you have to wear the Invisalign for at least a few months before you see some results.

It may take as long as 6 months to a year to see full results of the Invisalign but if you wear the Invisalign like you're supposed to then your teeth should be aligned properly.

Sometimes your teeth to move back slightly after you stop wearing Invisalign.

Your teeth moving back some after Invisalign is normal as they can slightly shift.

Your teeth moving back after Invisalign is the result of everyday wear and tear on your teeth as you bite down, chew, swallow, and speak.

Also Invisalign can sometimes cause yellow teeth.

Usually though you can have a dentist clean your teeth and remove that yellowing of the teeth if you have your teeth cleaned soon enough.

French Kissing or even just kissing is possible when you have Invisalign.

The Invisalign may make it more difficult to French Kiss or to just kiss someone but you can still kiss someone while wearing Invisalign.

The wearing of Invisalign is basically invisible to most people and you can easily still kiss someone while you're wearing your Invisalign.

The Invisalign does not affect your kissing ability.

When it comes to straightening and aligning your teeth and you're choosing between braces or Invisalign the Invisalign is much better than the braces.

The braces have a potential to cut your teeth and are less comfortable to wear and they need adjusted often.

But the Invisalign is much more comfortable to wear and does not have the potential to cut your gums.

So the Invisalign is much better for your teeth than braces.

The cost for Invisalign ranges from $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 depending on your location and the dentist you're getting the Invisalign from.

Some insurance will pay for part of the cost for Invisalign or even all of the cost for Invisalign so check with your dental health insurance plan to make sure they cover the cost for Invisalign.

If it's deemed medically necessary for you to have Invisalign to align your teeth then the dental health insurance will usually cover the cost of the Invisalign and treatments.

If it's not deemed medically necessary for your teeth and dental health then you may have to pay for the cost for Invisalign out of pocket.

You could get a personal loan to pay for the cost of Invisalign if the dental health insurance does not cover it.
