7 simple tips to help you maintain your Invisalign clear aligners

Clean Your Aligners Regularly

Remove your aligners before eating or drinking (except for plain water) to prevent staining and warping. Rinse them with lukewarm water whenever you remove them to prevent dried-on saliva and plaque buildup.

Brush and Floss Before Wearing Aligners

Always brush and floss your teeth before putting your aligners back in. This prevents food particles and bacteria from getting trapped between your teeth and the aligners.

Avoid Hot Water

 Hot water can warp the aligners, so always use lukewarm water for cleaning or rinsing.

Use Your Case

When you’re not wearing your aligners, keep them in their protective case. This prevents damage and reduces the chances of losing them.

Don't Eat or Drink with Aligners

Avoid eating or drinking (except water) while wearing your aligners. Food and beverages can stain and damage the aligners.

Replace Aligner Trays as Directed

Follow your orthodontist’s instructions for changing to a new set of aligner trays. This is essential for the progression of your treatment.

Regular Checkups

Follow your orthodontist’s recommendations for checkup appointments. They will monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
