Top Tips for Maintaining Your Invisalign Aligners: Expert Advice from Aero Dentistry

Daily Care Tips:

  • Regular Cleaning: Proper cleaning of your aligners is crucial. We recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste to gently brush your aligners at least twice a day. This helps remove plaque and prevent odors without scratching the aligners.
  • Rinse Before Reinserting: Always rinse your aligners under lukewarm water after each meal to remove food particles and bacteria before reinserting them. This practice helps maintain oral hygiene and prevents staining.

Keeping Aligners Clear and Odor-Free:

  • Avoid Certain Foods and Drinks: To keep your aligners clear, avoid consuming high-pigment foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, and berries directly while wearing them. If you do consume these, be sure to clean your teeth and your aligners before putting them back in.
  • Soak Regularly: Incorporate a routine of soaking your aligners in Invisalign cleaning crystals or a non-abrasive denture cleaner. This not only keeps them hygienic but also clear and free from any stubborn buildup.

Storage and Handling:

  • Proper Storage: Whenever you're not wearing your aligners, ensure they are stored safely in the case provided. This prevents them from getting damaged or lost and keeps them clean.
  • Handle with Care: Always use clean, dry hands when handling your aligners to avoid transferring germs and potentially damaging them.

Additional Maintenance Advice:

  • Avoid Heat: Keep your aligners out of high heat environments such as hot car dashboards or near cooking appliances, as excessive heat can warp the plastic.
  • Regular Dental Checkups: Continue to visit Aero Dentistry for regular check-ups and cleanings during your Invisalign treatment. This ensures any potential issues are caught early, and your treatment progresses as planned.
