I had an original set of 17, now im on another set of 12.. I think these second set feel different, theres no aches or pains during first few days of use

is this normal? it sort of makes me think it isnt working

My follow up isnt until January 30th and I really don't want to waste 8 weeks

also, he is having me change trays every week instead of two

This could be normal. I'm on tray 22 of my first set and I rarely have Pain. Slight tightness when I first put them in but that's about it. I've had a mostly painless and easy Invisalign experience thus far.

Totally normal. Some people do not feel much at all when wearing Invisalign whereas others will feel a bit of a dull ache.

In terms of aligner changes, we will often times change the cycle for the aligners based upon the movements required, compliance with wear, and individual biology. This can happen during the middle of treatment and is often a pleasant surprise for our patients!

I have metal braces on the bottom and Invisalign on the top. The bottom pain was HORRIBLE when they were first bracketed. I remember dreading when my trays came in because I would have to go through that again but I never had pain from invisalign. Once in a blue moon I would have some soreness on a individual tooth but that's it. NOTHING like metal braces. Totally normal :)
