Taking Care of Your Invisalign® Aligners

Taking Care of Your Invisalign® Aligners

Aug 08, 2018

Have you decided to finally correct your smile with Invisalign® treatment in Phoenix? At Encanto Family Dental Care we believe that education is an important part of any dental treatment. Today we’ll be discussing the best way to take care of your Invisalign® aligners to ensure the best outcome possible for your treatment.

Wear your Invisalign® aligners as directed.

At Encanto Family Dental Care we recommend wearing your aligners as frequently as possible, at minimum they must be worn for at least 22 hours a day. Your aligners may be removed to eat, drink or even clean your smile/aligners.

Store your Invisalign® aligners properly when not wearing them.

Due to the fact that Invisalign® aligners are designed to be virtually invisible, it is important to properly store them when you aren’t wearing them. Many patients have found that their aligners are nearly impossible to find once they’ve been misplaced.

Brush your Invisalign® aligners properly.

Although toothpaste is great for caring your smile, we recommend using an Invisalign® approved cleaning product or even clear antibacterial soap. Using anything other than what is recommended could damage and even stain your aligners.

Never eat or drink anything but WATER while wearing your Invisalign® aligners.

You want your aligners to remain clear/invisible right? Eating or drinking anything other than water can damage and even stain your aligners, making them a less discrete treatment option.
