How to Care for Invisalign® Aligners

Taking good care of your aligners is important to both your oral health and the success of your orthodontic treatment. Without properly cleaning your aligners and teeth, the aligners can trap bacteria underneath them, putting your teeth at risk of decay. Here are a few simple tips for taking care of Invisalign® aligners:

  • Brush your aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste every time you remove them from your mouth. Brush your teeth before putting aligners on.
  • Periodically soak your aligners in a glass of water with a denture cleaning tablet. This will help provide a deep cleaning for the aligners.
  • To make the aligners easier to put on, try using chewies: small rubber tubes that patients can bite down on to help seat the aligners.
  • Create a small Invisalign® care kit complete with everything you need to care for your teeth and aligners, then carry this with you throughout the day. This will make it easier to care for your aligners on the go.
