Dr. Richard Graham and the professionals here at BracesPlus know that their Waxhaw, NC patients have full, active lives. It’s easy to lose one’s keys, your wallet, or your phone, and because of the convenient, removable aspect of Invisalign clear aligners, it can also be easy to lose them too! It’s important to keep track of your clear aligners when they’re not being worn, and if you happen to lose them here’s a few tips!
What Do I Do If I Lose My Invisalign Trays?
First, don’t panic. We here at BracesPlus offer up to 6 free replacements aligners for Invisalign Teen. However, adults patients most often have to wait until they get their new set of trays, but Invisalign always comes with a backup plan…
How Do I Cope?
It’s possible for a patient to use their previous set as a sort of retainer to prevent teeth from moving back into their incorrect positions while they wait for their next set. We at BracesPlus recommend saving the previously used trays for this specific purpose.
How Do I Go On?
Don’t get discouraged because of a minor setback like a lost Invisalign tray. It won’t be long before your new trays can be worn and you’re back on a roll! Note that when switching to your new trays however, you may experience some mild discomfort at first from the pressure exerted on the teeth by the appliance. And going forward, keep your aligners in a safe place (like the provided case) when you take them out to eat, brush, floss, and clean.
To Whom Do I Turn?
