It’s crucial to maintain good oral hygiene during Invisalign treatment, and you will need to clean your teeth more frequently. You must brush and floss your teeth thoroughly after every meal or snack or after any drink other than water. If you fail to brush your teeth and replace your aligners, you trap food and plaque bacteria in the tray.
Because the Invisalign® Braces fit tightly over your teeth, any harmful substances like food and plaque are trapped right next to your teeth and your gums, increasing the risk that you will develop dental diseases like tooth decay and gum disease. Cleaning your teeth helps to prevent these diseases.
While your aligners are removed, you need to clean them too. There are several ways you can clean your aligners thoroughly. Cleaning methods include:
You can also clean your aligners by rinsing them under lukewarm water and by brushing them gently with your toothbrush. Invisalign sells a proprietary cleaning kit to keep your aligners clean and fresh and to help prevent discoloration of the aligner trays.
