Could Invisalign Aligners Take Any Longer Than Five Weeks?

I'm on week 7 and still don't have any Invisalign aligners. My dentist called me 7 weeks ago to tell me that they got the computer simulation. How much longer should I wait?

Normally 4-5 weeks

The normal length of time to wait is 4-5 weeks, but some cases are more involved and can take a little longer.  At 7 weeks, I would start to wonder and give a call to the dentist so he can contact Align Inc to see the status.

Invisalign aligners can take longer than expected

Due to the fact there are several middle men, the length of time to get Invisalign aligners can take longer than expected. Check back with you dentist in another 10-14 days if you have not heard anything.
