How to Take Care of Your Invisalign Aligners
Are you one of our Surrey Invisalign clients? Getting a lot of information at once can feel overwhelming, so we put together a post to remind you how to take care of your aligners.
Take your Invisalign aligners out of your mouth before eating … and then brush your teeth after every meal before putting them back in.
You can brush your Invisalign aligners with a toothbrush and regular toothpaste, rinsing in luke warm water. Alternatively, you can use a special formula created by Invisalign, called the Invisalign Cleaning System.
Be sure to always keep your aligners away from hot water, as that could warp the plastic and cause the aligner to lose it’s proper shape.
If you drop your aligner(s) by accident, always clean them to ensure they are hygienic again before placing them back in your mouth. (There’s not much more disgusting that putting something dirty in your mouth, after all…so you likely don’t need a reminder about this, but we need to tell you anyways…)
What Do I Do If I Lose or Break One of My Invisalign Aligners?
If this happens, as things do, be sure to call your dental office immediately so they can take the appropriate steps to get you a replacement asap so that your treatment doesn’t go off course. They will advise you as to what to do until you receive your replacement.
