How often should I wear my aligners each day?

To achieve the best results, it is recommended to wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. Consistent and proper wear of the aligners ensures the treatment progresses as planned. You should only remove the aligners for eating, drinking (except for water), brushing, and flossing.

The recommended wear time for aligners can vary depending on the specific orthodontic treatment plan prescribed by your dentist or orthodontist. In most cases, aligners should be worn for 20 to 22 hours per day. This means you should wear them consistently, removing them only for eating, drinking (except for plain water), brushing, and flossing. The extended daily wear time ensures that your teeth are constantly under gentle pressure, promoting effective tooth movement.

Compliance with the prescribed wear schedule is crucial for the success of your orthodontic treatment with aligners, and failure to wear them as instructed may lead to longer treatment times or less effective results. Always follow your orthodontist’s guidance for the best outcome in your orthodontic journey.
