For the best results, your teen should wear their Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. This means that they should only remove the aligners for eating, drinking (other than water), brushing, and flossing.
Consistency in wearing the aligners is key to the success of the treatment. If the aligners are not worn for the recommended amount of time each day, the treatment may take longer than expected or may not achieve the desired results. Your teen should also switch to a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, as recommended by their orthodontist.
It’s important to note that your teen’s individual treatment plan may vary depending on their specific orthodontic needs. Your orthodontist will provide instructions on how long your teen should wear their aligners each day, and they will monitor their progress throughout the treatment to ensure that they are on track to achieve the desired results.
