How often can I take out my Invisalign aligners?

One of the most attractive benefits of Invisalign is that the alignment trays are removable. This unique and convenient feature separates Invisalign from traditional metal braces and is ultimately why patients choose to use Invisalign in Lockport.

Invisalign Comfortably and Discreetly Straightens Teeth

We are commonly asked by our patients how often they can take out their Invisalign trays. Invisalign alignment trays are supposed to be worn for at least 22 hours each day to be effective.

However, this leaves several hours per day to take out your trays to eat and brush and floss your teeth. You should wear your trays as often as possible, but it is generally okay to remove them for a few hours for a special event, such as a wedding or photoshoot.
