How long should I wear my Invisalign aligners each day?

Your treatment with Invisalign will progress efficiently and as planned when you make an effort to wear your aligners as much as possible. At least 22 hours each day is ideal and will help you achieve your smile goals.

One of the fantastic benefits of invisible braces with Invisalign is that you can remove your aligners as needed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Busy adults love that they can also remove their aligners if they have an important meeting or event to attend. The critical thing is to be compliant and wear your aligners as much as possible outside of these events.

The more you regularly wear your aligners, the quicker your teeth will move, and your treatment plan will progress.
