Invisalign® Tips

December 4, 2018

When wearing your Invisalign aligners here are some things to keep in mind.

Many people know that Invisalign aligners are a great alternative if you don't want to experience the look and feel of traditional metal braces. What few people know, though, is that just like traditional braces, Invisalign requires proper care on the patient's end to work effectively. Good oral hygiene is highly important, even when you are wearing something in your mouth that you can take out when eating. It's still likely that your aligners can build up plaque if not treated properly. When wearing your Invisalign aligners, ask yourself the following questions:

1. Am I eating with my aligners in?

These aligners are removable and should be taken out when you eat.

2. Am I drinking anything other than water with my aligners in?

Though it's not necessary for you to take out your aligners while you drink, think about how sticky soda is. If you take out your aligners when drinking a soda, you have a better chance of keeping your aligners clean.

3. Am I brushing before putting the trays in?

The aligners have both an inside and outside. Keeping the outside clean is easy. Keeping the inside clean is also simple: just make sure you've brushed your teeth before putting in the trays. These are all very simple steps, and ultimately they help to keep you building good oral habits. If you have any questions about Invisalign or your treatment contact us.
