We strongly suggest changing aligners every 2 weeks in order to give your bones and tissues time to heal and fill in as your teeth shift. If do not follow the recommended schedule your final results and dental health could be compromised. This is not only for your comfort, but also for your dental safety and best long-term results.
Some people notice that their trays are consistently becoming loose after 7-10 days. In some of these cases, it's ok to change them out earlier. However, you should not do this without approval and supervision by your personal dentist or orthodontist. Why? Although your trays may feel loose, and it feels like your teeth have all moved, there are still usually still places on your bite where pressure is being placed. However, as your teeth are used to it, you likely won’t feel any pressure or discomfort past the first few days. This is what makes you feel like your teeth are finished moving, even though they aren’t.
If you change out your trays too fast and thereby move your teeth too fast, it can create significant complications – like gum recession, bone loss, and even resorption of your tooth roots. It may adversely affect the overall treatment outcome and require further correction at the end. So please follow the instructions and wear the aligners for 20-22 hours a day, for 2 weeks at a time.
Please also contact our customer support before changing your schedule or if you have further questions.
