Hello there,
Leaving your trays out for a month has allowed your teeth to move. Invisalign counts on you wearing your trays 22 hours per day to achieve the desired results.  Wearing the trays less than recommended can negatively affect your progress. I do not recommend skipping ahead.  Rather, I would suggest seeing your Invisalign provider for an evaluation. Having a new tray made will result in treatment being delayed another week or so, but you will have a better result. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
