To help you keep your appliance in tip-top shape, our Dental Partners Longwood team is happy to give you the following tips you need:
1-Rinse your aligner with water right after you remove it. Rinsing it will help keep the plaque and saliva from creating a breeding ground for bacteria.
2-Soak your aligner to keep it clean and sanitized. It’s best to soak it in denture cleaner, Retainer Brite, or the official Invisalign cleaning crystals. Brush your aligner gently to avoid scratching the appliance and leaving visible etchings.
3-Brush and floss your teeth before you put the aligner back into your mouth. Because the aligner is form fitting, it’s important to keep up on oral hygiene. If you don’t, there is a chance that harmful particles can get trapped between your teeth and aligner, which can cause dental problems in the future.
As you can see, caring for your aligner is really that simple! For more details and information, please call our office at 321-594-2427 and talk to a member of our experienced dental team. Dr. C. William D’Aiuto and our team are here to keep you smiling with confidence!
