What to Do If You Lose Your Invisalign Trays

,

Clear Dental AlignerSince your Invisalign trays need to come out to brush your teeth and eat, they can quickly be misplaced or accidentally thrown in the trash. What are you supposed to do though, if you lose your Invisalign trays?

Try Other Trays

Depending on how long you were wearing the lost set of aligners, you may be far enough along to proceed to the next set of trays.  Try them in but don’t force them.  If they fit, then wear them, but if they don’t, then try in the previous set (which you should always keep for such an occasion).

The last thing you want to do it completely interrupt your orthodontic treatment so you should always be wearing aligners.
