One of the biggest advantages of the Invisalign system is that the trays can be removed for easy cleaning. Please don’t neglect to do this! We really can’t overstate how important it is for your dental health to care for your teeth during and after Invisalign treatment.
The most important thing to remember is this: Be sure to brush your teeth after every meal or snack so that food and plaque do not get trapped in the aligners. Trapped food could promote tooth decay and gum disease, and nobody wants that!
Your aligners will also need to be cleaned regularly. You can do this by brushing them and then rinsing them with lukewarm water.
Also, please keep in mind that while wearing clear aligners is very different from wearing braces, the importance of retaining your post-treatment results is exactly the same. You’ll want to be sure to wear your retainer(s) exactly as prescribed after your treatment is completed to protect your investment in a beautiful new smile.
