Your Storage Case Should Be Lonely

In order to get the best orthodontic treatment and use your Invisalign to its fullest extent, you must wear the aligners for 20-22 hours per day. The only time the aligners should be taken out is when you are eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing. Invisalign only works while you are wearing your aligners, they should be worn day and night. When you are not wearing your Invisalign aligners, they should be stored in their case. More cases are always available from our San Diego orthodontist. If an aligner becomes loose or broken, please call Stormberg Orthodontics immediately for further instructions. 

Tooth Tabs

Tooth colored attachments will be attached to your teeth. These attachments are nearly invisible and will aid the aligners in moving your teeth properly. If any attachments come loose or fall off completely, please call Stormberg Orthodontics to correct the issue. 

Wearing Aligners for 7-14 Days

Depending on your specific smile goals and orthodontic treatment plan, you will have to wear your aligner series for 7-14 days to slowly move your teeth into the desired position. It’s essential to wear each aligner for the designated time period by Dr. Stormberg.

Be Patient With Your Invisalign 

We cannot stress this enough, do not wear any aligners out of order or wear them for a quicker period of time. We understand that you are eager for straight teeth, but your orthodontic treatment will not go as planned if you do not follow the Invisalign properly.  

Stay On Track

Your orthodontic treatment plan with Invisalign is specific and customized to your teeth. Make sure you stay on track with all of your appointments so that Stormberg Orthodontics can manage your progress and make any adjustments where necessary. 


After treatment is complete, you will receive a retainer to maintain the smile you’ve invested in. It’s essential that you wear the retainer to keep your new, straight smile in place.
