Is changing Invisalign aligners every week too soon?
Doctor Answers 1
7 day wear
Invisalign has announced that with their newest smart track plastic aligners that most simple and moderate movements can fully occur in just 7 day wear times per Aligner. For severe cases 14 day wear times per Aligner is indicated. Ultimately, it is up to your doctor to determine your wear time based on your case. In addition, I would say changing every week is fine as long as you only have them out of your mouth to eat and brush and you are wearing the aligners 22 hours a day without fail. If you can't do that then plan on two weeks per tray regardless of severity of tooth movement.
