Caring for Invisalign

Proper upkeep and good oral hygiene are essential in keeping your Invisalign aligners clean, invisible and odor free. The aligners can be easily removed for eating and drinking, however, failing to properly clean your aligners afterwards can result in discoloration and a buildup of bacteria.

To maintain clarity, it is good to periodically clear debris from your aligners with a soft toothbrush and water. Do not use toothpaste due to abrasives that can create micro abrasions that will make your aligners look cloudy and dull.

Do not use denture cleaners to clean aligners and do not soak your aligners in mouthwash. These products can damage the surface of the plastic causing it to become more visible, sometimes making the teeth look somewhat yellow.

  • Rinse your aligners when you remove them: Dry saliva and plaque create a perfect breeding ground for foul smelling bacteria.
  • Brush and floss your teeth before reinserting your aligners: Proper oral hygiene is key in maintaining healthy teeth and avoiding cavities and decay.
  • Brush your aligners gently: Vigorous brushing can scratch your aligners and leave visible etchings. Brush carefully!

Do not eat or drink (anything but water) while wearing Invisalign. Many foods and drinks can stain or discolor your aligners. And remember…using toothpaste to clean your aligners will scratch the plastic and dull your aligners. These scratches can also create small traps in your aligners for bacteria to dwell.
