I’ve been told the Invisalign Teen program has extra aligners in case you lose them. I tend to lose things a lot and wondered if an adult can do that program?

I’m sure your dentist would work with you on that. However, they’re on your teeth for everything except eating. If you just remember to put them right back on, you’re not likely to have any trouble.
Here’s how it works:
Your dentist gives you a pair of Invisalign aligners. You wear them for two weeks all the time, except when you’re eating. When you finish eating, you brush your teeth ( and don’t forget about flossing once a day), then put the aligners back in. At the end of two weeks, your dentist will give you a new set of aligners.
It’s really quite simple. If you’re still worried about losing them, they yes, speak to your dentist about the extra aligner option.
