Why do my Invisalign feel loose?
What happens is that the teeth move into position within a few days of putting the aligners in. The rest of the time is allotted to allow the bone to remodel around the new tooth position. If you don’t give it that rest time and move your teeth too quickly, your teeth will become loose.
Why do my aligners feel loose?
Your teeth feel loose. This is totally normal when wearing clear aligners. Some people say teeth feel loose and mobile. That’s very, very normal, because we are moving them. It’s a different feeling for customers who have never been through an orthodontic treatment.
Is Invisalign supposed to be loose in the back?
Generally, after a few days, your aligners should not feel loose on the back molar anymore. If your aligners still feel loose on the back molar and is popping off, you should consult with your Invisalign doctors and ensure that your teeth are tracking.
Is it normal for teeth to wiggle with Invisalign?
Braces, Invisalign, and other types of orthodontics move your teeth by reshaping the bone around the teeth. The new bone around the teeth may not be completely solidified after your braces come off, and you might notice a small amount of looseness. This isn’t a cause for concern–it’s normal.
How can you tell if Invisalign is loose?
“Too loose” is more of a concern for your treatment. There should be no gaps between the trays and the incisal edges of the teeth. Gaps typically indicate that the trays are too big or too little, and are usually caused by inaccurate impressions or the teeth’s inability to expand or move at the expected rate.
How long does it take to see results from Invisalign?
For optimal results, Invisalign gradually aligns your teeth, which minimizes discomfort and ensures a precise, healthy smile. It is unrealistic to see changes in one to two weeks. While result speed varies between patients, some patients may begin to notice a subtle difference within 10 to 12 weeks.
How many hours a day must you wear Invisalign?
22 hours per day
If you’re ready to invest your time and money into Invisalign orthodontic treatment, it’s important to wear your aligners for the recommended time of no less than 22 hours per day. You cannot brush your teeth or eat with your aligners in, which means you cannot wear them every single minute of the day.

What to expect before getting Invisalign?
Invisalign is Custom-Made. Invisalign custom designs each aligner for your mouth so your orthodontic needs are specifically met.
Is Invisalign gentler on your teeth?
Invisalign is proven to be effective while being gentler on your teeth and gums. Instead of cementing metal-based structures to your teeth, Invisalign trays conveniently slide over your teeth with minimal effort.
Does Invisalign work for crowded teeth?
Yes. Invisalign works for crowded teeth if the aligners are worn as recommended and with proper treatment planning by an orthodontist. Teeth crowding occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw for all of your teeth to fit normally.
How does Invisalign move teeth?
Invisalign is a series of aligners that incrementally move teeth as prescribed by the dentist based on the required results of the patient. The aligners are replaced every two weeks… each aligner moves the teeth a little more towards the goal of straightening the teeth.
