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 and brush your teeth before putting your aligners on.
  • Once or twice per week, use a non-scented, non-colored, antibacterial soap to eliminate bacteria.
  • To make the aligners easier to put on, use chewies: small rubber tubes that patients can bite down on to help seat the aligners.
  • Always place your aligners into your Invisalign® case when you remove them to eat and/or drink (avoid placing them in napkins). This is the easiest way to prevent losing your aligners.
  • We will give you a small and portable Invisalign® care kit complete with everything you need to care for your teeth and aligners. This will make it easier to care for your aligners on the go.
