My doctor told me to change my aligners every 7 days. Isn't this too fast?

Thank you for posting your question on Real Self. I will do my best to address your concern with the information provided.
It isn't abnormal to instruct 7 day aligner wear. It depends on how the case is set up and what tooth movements are happening. You may have more aligners and wearing each of them half of the time. Same end result. I suggest setting up a consult with another orthodontist for a second opinion. They can review your Clinchek and give you their opinion.
I hope that this helps and good luck!
