What should I do if I lose an Invisalign tray?

Invisalign in Phoenix, AZ, is an excellent way to straighten teeth without metal braces. But first, you must arrange a consultation with the dentist to ensure that Invisalign is suitable for your orthodontic needs.

If suitable, the Invisalign lab creates a series of custom tooth aligners, sometimes trays. You wear each one according to the schedule provided by your dentist before moving on to the next.

However, if you lose an Invisalign tray during treatment, it’s crucial to contact your dentist as soon as possible for a replacement or instructions. Sometimes, if it’s close to the time when you’re supposed to change your aligner, your dentist may allow you to change it early.

The best way to prevent aligner loss is to wear it all the time unless you’re eating or cleaning your teeth—at least 22 hours per day is ideal. When eating and cleaning your teeth, always keep your aligner in the exact location; that way, you’ll remember where you put it.
