Invisalign aligners are a great way to straighten your teeth without the hassle of traditional metal braces. But, like teeth, Invisalign aligners need to be cleaned regularly to prevent the growth of bacteria and oral health problems. To keep your aligners in top condition, here's a step-by-step guide on how to clean them. First, rinse your aligners with water every night.
This will help remove any debris or food particles that have accumulated during the day. Next, brush your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush (not the one you use to brush your teeth every day) and a clear, mild liquid soap. Make sure the soap does not contain any color, as this may stain the transparent aligners. Distilled white vinegar is also great for disinfecting your Invisalign, but only if you use clear vinegar.
You can also use Invisalign Cleaning Crystals solution to soak your aligners up to twice a day. This is a great regular solution for keeping your aligners clean. Finally, scrub the Invisalign retainers with a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any remaining cleaning residue and check if they are solid. Cleaning your Invisalign aligners may seem like a lot of work, but it only takes a few minutes each day.
With proper care and maintenance, you can keep your Invisalign aligners looking and feeling like new.
