What Happens if You Don’t Wear Your Invisalign for a Week?

Convenience is one of the biggest advantages for Invisalign wearers. Patients love the flexibility and freedom of removing their clear aligners for short periods of time, whether for a special event, during meals or while brushing and flossing. Too work effectively, Invisalign requires self-discipline and patient compliance. Those who wear their aligners for less than 22 hours a day will see much slower results, and while a couple of hours here or there won’t derail your progress, forgetting to wear them for a week can have more serious consequences.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder, and gout is an inflammatory form of arthritis. At first blush, it would appear that these two medical conditions have little to nothing in common.

An overbite is a common type of malocclusion in which the upper teeth stick out too far ahead of the lower teeth. It’s possible for some cases to be hereditary. However, most overbites are caused by jaw development problems. A young child’s habits, like thumb-sucking and tongue-thrusting, can cause the jaw to develop atypically. The lower jaw may be under-developed or the upper jaw may be over-developed. Overbites can even be acquired later in life from years of engaging in harmful habits like chewing on the fingernails. Regardless of how… Read More

Most kids aren’t fully aware of their own vulnerabilities. They climb trees and do dangerous skateboarding tricks, and play contact sports without being mindful of the proper precautions. And sometimes, the result is a knocked-out tooth or dental trauma that’s so severe the natural tooth can’t be salvaged. If your teen has an avulsed or knocked-out tooth, a dentist may be able to replant it if your teen gets to the office within an hour.
