Invisalign aligners must be worn for at least 22 hours a day to be effective. This means that they should only be taken off for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing. It is recommended to wear them for 20 to 22 hours per day. Not only do teeth move when braces or clear aligners are used, but the underlying jaw bone and supporting ligaments also change.
Booking a consultation at The Bachmayer Orthodontic Clinic is the best way to ensure that your Invisalign aligners are working correctly. Retainers are also important for strengthening the jaw bone and connective tissue.
