What If I Lose An Invisalign Tray?

Unfortunately, replacement trays are not free. One tray can cost up to $150. Although the best thing to do is NOT lose a tray, these things do happen. Sometimes trays get left behind at restaurants or accidentally thrown in the garbage. Here are Dr. Nikaeen’s tips for keeping track of your Invisalign tray at all times and how to reduce the chance of losing it.

Make wearing your Invisalign tray the required 22 hours a day a habit and do not skip trays even if you lose one. Take it as a lesson learned and pay for a new one; each tray moves your teeth gradually and you need to keep it in for two weeks before you can advance to the next stage. Prematurely moving to the next stage will negatively affect your teeth. They won’t be ready for that next stage because they won’t be in the right position.
