Clean Your Aligners Regularly

One of the easiest things you can do to care for your Invisalign clear aligners at home is to clean them regularly. Many users find that cleaning your aligner at the same time you brush your teeth is a quick and easy way to establish a routine. Cleaning your aligners is very simple. Use a small amount of toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently scrub your aligners. Doing this will remove bacteria that could cause harm to your teeth and gums if allowed to remain.

Avoid Abrasive Materials

One way you can damage your aligners over time is to use abrasive materials when you clean them. Regular soap, cleaners meant for dentures, or even mouthwash can be too abrasive for the materials which make up your aligners. They will not destroy the aligners, the aligners can develop a less clear and a more dull appearance. The dullness will make the aligners easier to see by other people  and remove the “invisible” aspect of the treatment.

Remove Before Eating

One feature of your Invisalign aligners that makes them appealing to patients is that they are easily removed. Removing your aligners is important when you eat or drink. If you do not remove them, you could damage or stain them. Water is the exception. If you want to leave them in while you drink water, that is perfectly acceptable.

Proper Storage

When you remove your aligners, make sure to place them in their case. Try to make this a habit anytime you remove them. This will help you ensure that you do not accidentally damage them or even throw them away. To keep them safe, keep them in the case when you are not wearing them.
