Invisalign Care and Maintenance
Here are some helpful hints to keep your aligners sparkling clean, and to keep your treatment moving as quickly as possible!
- More is Better! Ideally aligners should be worn 22 hours a day, except when eating, drinking, brushing or flossing. Please wear them full time, day and night (unless we instruct you otherwise).
- Maintain regular checkups and cleanings throughout your Invisalign treatment at your dental office.
- Brush your aligners every time you take them out of your mouth. We recommend using Polident FreshCleanse instead of toothpaste, as it tends to be less abrasive.
- If you notice build up on your aligners (tartar), the Polident Retainer tablets are a great way to clean them. Simply put a tablet in a glass of water, and soak your aligners while they’re out (eg while you’re eating dinner). They should then brush clean.
