What can happen if you don't wear your Invisalign one day?

Is there anything that can happen if you forget to put your Invisalign trays for a day? Do teeth shift back? Does the treatment suffer?

Invisalign should be worn at least 22 hours/day EVERY DAY. Sure, sometimes you cannot wear them (forget them or have some issues), so 1-2 days will not make a huge change in your treatment, not make the teeth shift back. But doing this constantly (not wearing the aligners as advised) can have a bad influence on your treatment outcome.

The success or failure in your treatment depends on how disciplined you are, so try to wear your Invisalign as advised. One day won't mess your treatment, but don't do it often

You will most likely have to wear your Invisalign aligners for nearly 2 years. If you don't wear your Invisalign one day, you will not achieve your Invisalign result. Start wearing your Invisalign all the time and Invisalign will offer you a great result.
