What to Do If You Lose Your Invisalign Aligners

Clear Braces Marietta GA

Being that you need to take Invisalign trays out to eat, it can be challenging at first, as a new aligner wearer, to remember to keep up with your clear trays.

Avoid Losing Your Trays

To prevent losing your aligners, William R. Kincer, our orthodontist in Marietta, GA, recommends that you do your best to make a conscious effort to always know where they are. Since most of the time lost trays occur when you’re eating out at a restaurant, we suggest making a habit of putting your aligners in their designated container, and in your purse or pocket. Never place your trays in a napkin and set them on the table.

What If I Lose My Trays?

Despite all your efforts not to lose your trays, if you misplace them, you should do the following:

Try in Other Aligners

Depending on what day of wear you were on with the lost trays, you may either fit into your next set of aligners already or feel better in your previous ones. Remember, this is one of the reasons you should always keep your last set of aligners. Whichever ones fit better, wear those because anything is better than nothing.

Come to See The Orthodontist

You’ll need to come in for an evaluation with our Marietta, Georgia orthodontist. We’ll have to assess your teeth and determine what steps we need to take to get you back on track. We may need to order you another set of trays. Your treatment may be delayed or altered but typically it’ll only be by at the most a few weeks. It’s important to get in to see us right away, so if this is a situation that you find yourself in give us a call right away.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
