Lost Retainer?

I finished my invisalign about 4 months ago, and recently lost my retainer which I have been wearing at night. It will take around 10 days to get my replacements. I'm afraid my teeth will move back during this time. Will I have to start invisalign over|

Your best choice would be to wear your last set of Invisalign trays until you receive the new retainers.

Probably Not

It depends how much your teeth shift during the time it takes to get your replacement retainers.


Most likely you will not have to start over, but the retainers will probably feel quite tight at first.
