When it comes to Invisalign treatment, the general rule of thumb is that you should change your aligner trays every two weeks. However, depending on the complexity of your case, you may need to wait three weeks between changes. On the other hand, simpler settings may only require 10 days of use before switching to a new set. If you're looking to reduce your treatment time, you can try changing your trays every week.
But it's important to note that this will only work if you're diligent about wearing your aligners for the recommended amount of time each day (at least 20-22 hours). Otherwise, weekly tray changes won't be effective. It's also important to note that Invisalign trays should not be changed every five days. This is because your teeth won't be able to move properly in such a short period of time.
At Gladwell Orthodontics, we like to combine Invisalign with AcceleDent Aura whenever possible so that our patients can change their aligners every 5-7 days and shorten their treatment period. This means that you can change the trays on the same day of every week. We find that making a consistent change on a specific day of the week is much easier for our patients, as they don't have to keep track of when their aligners were last changed. If you're considering Invisalign treatment, it's important to understand how often you should change your trays in order to get the best results. Generally speaking, most people should switch their trays every two weeks.
However, depending on the complexity of your case, you may need to wait three weeks between changes or even switch them every week if you're looking to reduce your treatment time. At Gladwell Orthodontics, we can help you determine how often you should change your Invisalign trays and provide additional treatments such as AcceleDent Aura to help reduce your treatment time.
