How long do I have to wear Invisalign trays each day?
One of the significant advantages of Invisalign clear braces is the fact that they are removable for eating, brushing, and flossing. But obviously they can’t do their job unless you’re actually wearing them.
The dentists at Collins and Lowery DDS are certified Invisalign providers, and we can tell you that you need to wear your Invisalign aligner trays no fewer than 22 hours per day. This is necessary because your teeth are always moving ever so slightly. Even a few hours without the trays in your mouth can start to undo the results you’ve achieved.
Invisalign clear braces are popular because they are comfortable, removable, and virtually invisible. In fact, Invisalign looks and feels so great that it’s easy to forget that they have to do a lot of work to achieve a perfectly aligned smile. But you need to remember that Invisalign aligners are a serious orthodontic treatment system.
When you change to a new set of aligners after two weeks, you will notice that they feel uncomfortable at first. That is because after just two weeks, your teeth have moved enough that you can actually see and feel the difference.
Choosing Invisalign treatment is a big commitment, but the reward is in the fantastic results that you’ll see when it’s all finished. Please contact our Pembroke dental offices for more information about Invisalign clear braces.
