Taking Care of Your Invisalign Trays

Published on September 12th, 2019

Congratulations on taking the next step to getting straighter teeth! Our Invisalign process in Lakeview is seamless, easy, and works on with schedule so we are excited to have you join us. Now that you have your trays, make sure you follow these steps to keep them in the best condition possible.

 

Rinse

You should rinse your aligners when you remove them because dry saliva and plaque create a perfect place for bad-smelling bacteria. Rinsing your aligners after each removal will keep them clean and bacteria-free.

 

Soak

You can use cleaners such as denture cleaner, Retainer Brite, and the official Invisalign cleaning crystals to keep your trays clear and sanitized.

 

Brushing and Flossing

Before you put your aligners back in your mouth, brush and floss your teeth. Your proper oral hygiene routine will help maintain healthy teeth and avoid cavities and decay. If you aren’t brushing and flossing regularly, harmful particles can get trapped between your teeth and aligner, leading to potential dental issues.

 

Brush & Clean Your Aligners

Brushing your aligners gently can help keep plaque and bacteria at bay. You can also clean your aligners with anti-bacterial soft soap. This type of soap is an excellent and inexpensive way to keep your aligners clear and fresh and most importantly, free from harmful bacteria.
