I would try using Tylenol 650mg instead, to prevent extended bleeding that can occur with Motrin or Advil. An opiate like Lortab/Vicodin would also be a good alternative for a few days.

They are going to have to take out the wisdom teeth in order for you to have in Invisalign because, with your wisdom teeth still in your mouth after the Invisalign Tray set is all done with your teeth will just shift back to the way they were. That's what my dentist told me. It would also be in your best interest to get all four of your wisdom teeth out at the same time, so you only have to go through the pain of it once.
