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 the reason patients choose to use Invisalign in Lockport. 

We are commonly asked by our patients how often they can take out their Invisalign trays. Invisalign alignment trays are supposed to be worn at least 22 hours each day to be effective. However, this leaves several hours per day where you can take out your trays to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. You should wear your trays as often as possible, but it is generally ok to remove them for a few hours for a special event such as a wedding or photoshoot. 

As your orthodontist in Lockport, we want your Invisalign alignment trays to work as effectively as possible. The trays have their best chance to work when you wear them as directed, so we ask that you wear your trays for 22 hours each day except for special occasions. 

If you have specific questions about when to wear your Invisalign alignment trays, we would be happy to answer them for you! Just give your orthodontist in Lockport, NY a call at (716) 772-7500!
