Your teeth and gums may be sore for the first few days after starting Invisalign treatment. This is normal and should go away on its own within a few days. You may find it difficult to eat at first because of the soreness and the presence of the aligners. Stick to soft foods and cut your food into small pieces to make it easier to chew. Also you may also find it difficult to speak at first because of the aligners. This should improve over time as you get used to the aligners. It's important to maintain good oral hygiene while wearing aligners. Brush your teeth at least twice a day and use floss threaders or a water flosser to clean between your teeth and around the aligners.
