Is Invisalign painful to wear?

I am a 30 year old male. I want Invisalign and have questions. Is Invisalign painful to wear?

Hello, Invisalign is not painful to wear because your trays are made to fit your bite. However, they can be slightly uncomfortable and tight because they are positioning the teeth to be straightened. Thank you for your question.

Invisalign is not usually painful at all. The first aligners can cause minor discomfort for a day or two. Overall much more comfortable than wires and brackets. And the results are wonderful.
