Lost invisalign tray, ok to jump ahead
In my office I would have told you the same thing. As long as the current one fits and then in 2 weeks the next one fits you should be OK. My concern is that you already lost two sets of trays. That is a problem. Use the trays your dentists provides you with
OK To Jump Ahead 1 Week Invisalign
I would have advised the same. As long as the current one tracks properly by the end of 2 weeks, and the next set fits as well, you should be just fine.
