How to clean Invisalign? Step by step process
First of all, you should remember to clean your Invisalign trays twice a day. We recommend you to have a separate soft toothbrush for your aligners, and use an Invisalign cleaner or a home solution. Don’t forget to rinse the trays with lukewarm water before putting them back in your mouth.
Secondly, remember take out your trays before having any kind of food (so the aligners don’t get stains) and don’t forget to rinse your teeth before putting the aligners back in after meal.
Thirdly, when you’re not wearing your aligners, put them in their protective case, so no bacteria from external come on it. Finally, to keep the aligners in perfect condition soak them in the Invisalign cleaner at least once a week. Also, it is important to avoid very warm or hot water, as this can change the shape of your aligners and negatively affect the straightening of your teeth.
Lastly, while travelling, remember to take your previous aligners along with your current ones and the next ones. If you lose your current ones, just figure out how long you’ve been wearing it to decide whether to go back to the previous or forward to the next set of aligners.
