What’s the timeline of Invisalign?
How long do I need to wear Aligners?
You need to wear each set of Invisalign aligners for two weeks. You will wear aligners in a prescribed sequence, with each next set moving your teeth that much closer to the proper position.
Steps to Avoid Extending Your Invisalign Treatment
In addition to wearing your Invisalign aligners for the full two weeks or so recommended by your Invisalign orthodontist, there are a few other things you can do to avoid having your overall treatment extended. The first additional thing you can do is wear your aligners for however long your orthodontist tells you to every single day during your treatment.
In general, patients are advised to wear their Invisalign clear aligners for a minimum of 20-22 hours every day. If you fail to do so often enough, it can throw your treatment plan off track.
Another thing you can do to keep your overall treatment on schedule is to keep track of your Invisalign aligners. If you lose your aligners, you may be forced to revert back to the aligners you wore previously, which may prolong your treatment.
If you wore your previous set of aligners long enough, you might be able to advance to your next set ahead of schedule if your orthodontist or dentist says it is okay. In many cases, your orthodontist will simply order a replacement set of aligners for you. While that is certainly helpful, it will take several days for you to receive your replacement Invisalign aligners.
