Is Invisalign Painful?

Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Portsmouth - VA

One of the reasons that so many patients in the Virginia Beach area are dissatisfied with traditional metal braces is that those braces are uncomfortable and often painful. The metal wires can poke and prod sensitive gums and cheeks, and the frequent tightenings required throughout the orthodontic process are thoroughly unpleasant.

Fortunately, exciting Invisalign® technology does not have this problem. Offered by Dr. Michael Folck, DDS, Invisalign provides you with a comfortable, painless orthodontic adjustment.

Invisalign® works through sets of custom designed clear plastic aligners. These fit snugly over your teeth, ensuring a comfortable experience. There are no metal wires to poke the interior of your mouth, and since you remove the aligners before you eat, you won’t have to worry about the discomfort of getting food caught under the wires.

Finally, Invisalign® does not require adjustment appointments. You’ll wear a set of aligners for a certain period of time, then return to our office for a new set. No painful, tedious time in a dentist’s chair while braces are tightened.

If you’re a Virginia Beach, Virginia area resident and you want to learn more about Invisalign’s® advantages, please contact Dr. Michael Folck, DDS today for a consultation.
