My Aligner is Bent. Should I Visit My Orthodontist?

Hi Dr Patel, hope you are well. I’ve been wearing Invisalign aligners for a good 2 months now and so far am very happy as there have been no problems. But the other day I dropped my aligner on the kitchen floor and it sort of looks bent now. It still fits alright but should I go to my orthodontist about it anyway? I’ve got quite a while to go until my next visit but I’m worried that the bend will affect my treatment even though it’s only very slight. Do you think I should make an appointment?
Hello, thank you for your question. I do think you should go to see your dentist, just to be on the safe side.It should be fine if you only dropped the aligner and didn’t stand on it, but it’s better to get it checked just in case. – Dr Riten Patel.
