How long should I wear my Invisalign trays each day?
Invisalign is a popular, short-term adult orthodontic treatment because it adapts to the adult lifestyle. Patients appreciate Invisalign’s conveniences, one of which is the removable aligner trays that gently nudge your teeth into the desired position.
This offers a lot of freedom because you can remove your aligners for meals, oral hygiene, and special events. But you must wear them 22 to 23 hours per day to achieve results in the shortest amount of time.
Stay Diligent with Wearing Your Trays
Unfortunately, the same freedom can derail your Invisalign treatment if you aren’t compliant with wearing your trays as instructed. If you maintain your scheduled check-ups with Dr. Fairfax, she will know if you’ve been following the instructions or not.
Going for even a few hours without your trays impacts the way your teeth feel when you put them back in your mouth. The micromovements of your teeth are quickly undone when you’re not wearing your trays, and you may have to go back to the previous set to start moving your teeth all over again.
If you are going to invest your time and money in Invisalign treatment in Fairfax, you owe it to yourself to comply with the instructions. When you do, your treatment will proceed right on schedule, and you will achieve the straight smile you want in the shortest time possible.
