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.
