Quiz: Why Your Invisalign Isn’t Working

When you make a good candidate for Invisalign treatment and you choose it, then it can work beautifully. If you use it as directed, there’s no reason you won’t end up with success throughout and by the end of your treatment. However, if you cut corners or don’t follow instructions, you may be surprised by how strongly such choices can impact your progress in achieving a gorgeous, aligned smile. Not to worry, a quiz will help you sort out what could cause interrupted treatment.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: If you decide you don’t feel like wearing your Invisalign treatment trays for a day (or you accidentally forget), this is no biggie and won’t have a significant impact on your treatment.
  2. True or False: If you are not washing your trays exactly as we suggest for you to, then it’s possible this is getting in the way of your treatment.
  3. True or False: As long as you keep wearing your trays for about a year, you will end up with a straight smile, even if you don’t make it to all of your appointments.

Quiz Answers

  1. False. The longest you should go without your Invisalign treatment trays in your mouth is about two to four hours. If you’re going any longer than that, especially if this happens on more than one occasion, it can interrupt your progress.
  2. True. Did you know that if you use very hot water, you can alter the shape of the trays and that if you use harsh products, it can damage them? Always follow our instructions.
  3. False. You aren’t supposed to wear one set of trays. You will wear many sets (in a series) to progressively guide you toward straight teeth. As a result, visits are completely essential.
