What happens if I wear my Invisalign tray for 30 minutes less a day? (Photo)

Stick with the prescribed length of wear! You run the risk of compromising your end result, and I am sure you don't want to do that, do you?
Invisalign Tray Time
Wear your #Invisalign trays as indicated #DrSoftTouch
Invisalign counts on you wearing your trays 22 hours per day to achieve the desired results. Sometimes life does not always permit, and wearing your trays for 30 minutes less occasionally will not impact your treatment. However, do NOT get in the habit of wearing them less than recommended since your results with Invisalign are influenced by compliance in wearing your aligners. Good luck and I hope this helps.

It is recommended to wear your aligners 22 hrs/day, and I would try to keep that habit. Obviously, life does not always allow you to stick to that schedule. A half an hour less would be okay. Your treatment will progress very well but don't get into the habit of wearing the aligners less.
