Should I worry that I get a sore throat when wearing aligners?

Q. I just started invisalign treatment and have only one problem to note. When I am wearing my aligners I get an annoying throat irritation, simialr to that when you have a sore throat. I think this must be caused by the aligners as it goes away when I take them out. Have any other patients reported such problems, and do you have any advice as to what I can do to prevent it?
A. Hello,

The aligner can be smoothed if it causes mild irritation on the gum. However it is very rare. You might want to see you dentist .
