How will you take care of your Invisalign aligners?

It is important to keep your Invisalign aligners clean to avoid the build-up of harmful bacteria. These aligners also catch up stains very easily. As a result, they don’t remain invisible inside your mouth any more. Therefore, you must take care of them as much as possible. Here’re some tips to keep them clean and discreet.

  • Soak them in a solution of lukewarm water and a mild anti-bacterial soap for about 15 minutes once every fortnight.
  • Avoid using any harsh chemicals as they may damage the retainers.
  • Gently scrub the aligner with a soft-bristled toothbrush.
  • Never use toothpastes or mouthwashes to wash the aligners – these substances make more damage than actually cleaning them.
  • Always keep the aligners in a box to protect them from damage. This way, you won’t lose them when you take them out from your mouth.
  • Brush your teeth every time after a meal or before slipping on the aligners to minimise the bacteria build-up in the mouth.
  • Avoid drinking beverages that stain easily like coffee, red wine and tea when wearing the aligners.
