Taking Care of Your Invisalign Aligners
Are you looking for care information on Invisalign aligners? When you take care of all of your aligners exactly as you are supposed to, they are going to work much better. Ready to learn proper Invisalign care so you can have the straight teeth you want?
One of the main reasons why Invisalign is chosen to straighten one's teeth is because they are completely removable for a certain period of time every single day. This feature makes them a popular option amongst those who want straighter teeth, as they can be removed when eating, drinking and when attending special events. The ability to remove braces when eating is a great benefit because it is so much easier to eat and drink without wearing braces, as well as much easier to clean the teeth and gums in the morning and at night.
Because Invisalign aligners can be removed from the mouth, it is much easier to clean and maintain them, making them a preferred teeth straightening option.
General maintenance of Invisalign aligners
The following is a list of tips that can help anyone take proper care of their Invisalign aligners.
Tip #1 – Keep them clean
Keeping Invisalign aligners clean is essential for them to work correctly. If the aligners are not adequately cleaned then plaque deposits could start to buildup on them, which contains bacteria that can lead to oral issues like an infection and gum disease. They may also no longer be clear when they are dirty, defeating the whole purpose.
Tip #2 – Take them out when eating
Not keeping them in when eating or drinking is recommended. If Invisalign aligners are kept in the mouth when someone is eating or drinking, it can stain the aligners and even potentially create an unpleasant smell.
Tip #3 – Soak the aligners
Soaking aligners regularly allows for special deep cleaning. Invisalign wearers can also use an anti-bacterial cleaner as to remove any plaque or bacteria existing in the aligner.
Tip #4 – Rinse the aligners
Rinsing the aligners with water before placing them back into the mouth helps to wash away any saliva or food particles that may be inside of the aligner.
