Invisalign Review – Sometimes These Trays Destroy My Lips

This happens from time to time I’ve noticed and I’d like to talk about it a bit in my Invisalign Review. Every now and then, this has actually happened about five or six times since I’ve started with my Invisalign treatment. What happens is that the Invisalign trays (or only my Invisalign trays) seem to have some jagged edges near where the end of the tray is on my lower set of teeth. These jagged edges sometimes can be A big problem, I’ll explain why.

The Problem With The Jagged Edges

These jagged edges on my Invisalign trays are definitely a big downside to me and my Invisalign Review. What happens when I initially put them on my teeth is that the jagged edge of the Invisalign retainer seems to rub up against my gums and really irritate my mouth. It actually seems to rub up enough along the bottom side of my teeth that it feels like that there is a one inch long cole sore or canker sore that really hurts. It gets really old really fast and does not feel good. It’s basically constant chaffing between my gums and my lips. These Invisalign trays can be really jagged too!


This may actually be a really helpful part of my Invisalign Review for you. I’m documenting this so you might have some ideas for what to do when it happens to you when you’re going along with the treatment. It seems like the biggest thing that can act as a remedy to this problem is that you simply take the trays out for a couple of hours and let your mouth rest. When you put the trays back in, they feel a little bit tight on your teeth right off the bat but your gums definitely will feel better. Aren’t you glad I’m sharing this with you for my Invisalign Review. This is one of the biggest problems I’ve had while doing this Invisalign Review in terms of irritation and being uncomfortable while going through with the treatment.

What Else

Here’s an Invisalign Review question I have for anyone who knows the answer to it. The weird thing about this constant gum chaffing or whatever this thing is that feels like a giant cole sore caused by the jagged edge of one of my Invisalign trays is that it doesn’t happen with every Invisalign tray. This has only happened a few times and with certain trays which makes me feel that it could be bacteria related. Could this be related to my not cleaning my teeth properly or keeping up with the maintenance that it takes to continue with Invisalign? If you have any answer, please let me know and I’ll be sure to include it in my Invisalign Review.
