Invisalign - struggling to stick to 22 hours?

Invisalign movements are carefully built in each tray based on a certain number of hours of wear per tray. The proper protocol is to wear each tray 22 hours per day for 14 days. That said, consistency is key. Be sure that you continue to wear your trays 20+ hours per day to ensure optimal results. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

20-22 hour should be fine.
Time wearing aligners
Congratulations on your Invisalign treatment! It's fantastic that you are compliant with wearing your aligners. 22 hours is the recommended length of time per day. The more you wear your aligners the better, but if you're wearing them consistently for approximately 20 hours a day, you will be ok. Consistency is key.
Best of luck!
