Beware: 3 Ways To Lose Trays

You might not be able to imagine a scenario in which you lose your Invisalign treatment trays. After all, they’re usually in your mouth. When they’re not, you’re either eating, brushing, or flossing, so what’s the big deal? Is it really something you should worry about? The truth is, we have seen many a distraught (and otherwise usually very responsible patients) who has misplaced or lost trays. To make sure this doesn’t happen to you, we’d like to give you some ideas of things to avoid, so you can keep those trays close (and safe).

Your Pup Thought They Were Toys

As you probably know if you have a pet, it takes about two seconds for you to turn your back only to discover that your precious pooch thought your socks, your phone, or your Invisalign treatment trays were a plaything! Keep your trays safely stored when not in use (and out of reach of children and pets), so they don’t go missing.

You Put Them In The Pocket Of…Something

Don’t store your Invisalign treatment trays in the pocket of your pants, your coat, your bag, etc. When you do this, two things may happen: 1. The trays can become damaged. 2. You might not remember which pocket, which can lead to misplaced trays.

You Threw Them Out

It really does happen quite a lot. You place your Invisalign treatment trays wrapped gently in your napkin on the table at a restaurant. You eat. You leave. You get home. You remember: “My trays!” They may be long gone by the time you begin your search. Plan ahead, so this doesn’t occur.
