Invisalign Cleaning tips and Maintenance
In addition to straightening your teeth without getting you unwanted attention like traditional braces, the Invisalign aligners are also removable which facilitate your care routine for both your teeth and your aligners.
Similar to brushing and flossing for healthy teeth and gums, keeping your Invisalign aligners clean is also critical for your oral hygiene.
Here are some recommendations to keep your trays clean:
• Brush and floss you teeth: Giving that you are wearing a tight fixture pressed against your teeth for a long amount of time, you want to make sure to always brush and floss your teeth before putting your trays on. This will prevent and protect both your teeth and gums from any bacterial exposure.
• Rinse: Always make sure to rinse your trays when taking them off. This will help to avoid the build-up of bacteria! You can rinse them with water, anti-bacterial soap or cleaning solution to give them extra protection. Avoid products with harsh ingredients as it can damage or stain your strays.
• Soak: After rinsing, soak your Invisalign trays in cleaning treatments. You can use denture cleaner or specific Invisalign cleaning products. Make sure to use gentle products that won’t damage your trays.
Implementing these simple habits will make your experience more pleasant and successful in keeping a beautiful smile.
