I think they usually move two at a time per arch. Maybe one tooth is more sensitive to the current movement?? The last time I saw my ortho I questioned him on if Invisalign was still moving my molars cause I wasn't feeling anything and he said if you go by feeling you'll be wrong every time. I'm not sure I believe that but I thought I'd throw it out there.

Invisalign seemed to only move a few teeth at a time for me. I would very often have only one tooth that ached. And yes, it's true that you're teeth can move without hurting. I have a lower incisor that's moved significantly in the past week and hasn't hurt or ached at all. If you read through the Metal Mouth forum you'll find a number of members that never have pain or very minor pain yet their teeth move just as much as the rest of us.
