One key element of your dental hygiene is making sure that you have a regular and consistent teeth cleaning routine. That includes getting the technique right and making sure that you floss! If you are undergoing Invisalign treatment, or are thinking about investing in Invisalign, then learning how to properly clean your aligners is also a concern that you will have to think about.
Here are our top tips for keeping your Invisalign trays clean and keeping your newly straightened teeth sparkling into the future.
Keep it simple
There’s no need to worry about buying special cleaning products for your Invisalign aligners. Your regular toothbrush and toothpaste will do the job just perfectly. Any other special cleaning products run the risk of discolouring the plastic on the aligners and can make your teeth appear yellowed. Not a good look!
Keep it consistent
Your aligners are replaced every couple of week, to ensure that they track the straightening movement of your teeth. That means that you have to set up a cleaning routine that is consistent and you can follow. If you develop a complicated routine then you’re less likely to stick to it and it is of the utmost importance that your aligners stay clean.
Keep it regular
When it comes to cleaning your aligners, the same rules apply as your teeth. Make sure that you clean your aligners and your teeth after every meal! This becomes even more important when you’re wearing aligners. If you get food trapped in your aligners it will start to wear away at the enamel of the teeth and cause decay. Keep your teeth and aligners clean and you won’t have to worry!
It’s easy really. Just a few simple adjustments mean that you can take advantage of all the amazing benefits that Invisalign has to offer you and your smile, while keeping your teeth healthy and sparkling at the same time.
