How Long do You Wear Invisalign a Day?
Invisalign aligners should be worn between 20 to 22 hours per day. Essentially, they should remain in your mouth as much as possible for the treatment to be effective. That being said, aligners can (and should) be temporarily removed when eating, brushing, and flossing. This is one big advantage that Invisalign has over braces. Unlike traditional braces, you are not limited to what you can eat as long as you remove them first.
The entire treatment of Invisalign usually takes 12 months. It can also be shorter or longer depending on how misaligned your teeth are and how long you leave your aligners in each day. Your aligner tray should be replaced every two weeks throughout the duration of your treatment.
