Accidentally skipped Invisalign tray
I would definitely advise not going back to tray #14. You should contact your dentist; he/she will likely tell you to remain in tray #15 an extra two weeks or tell you not to worry about it and continue to #16. I have had patients skip a tray before and I usually have them wear the current tray longer, to make sure that we are not rushing the teeth. Typically, when teeth are moved too fast, it can cause tooth root resorption. Mistakes happen, but please try to pay closer attention to your tray numbers so that you do not damage your teeth and roots.
