Tips for Taking Care of Your Aligners

So that your Invisalign aligners take care of your orthodontic needs, you need to take care of your Invisalign aligners. Proper aligner maintenance is a fundamental part of the orthodontic process. Not only will clean and undamaged aligners provide better treatment, but also they will prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease issues. To make sure that bacteria and food debris do not contaminate your aligners, brush them before inserting them into your mouth. You can also use a special solution to dislodge food particles. To protect your aligners from heat, trauma, and other damaging elements, keep them in a durable container when not in use. Removing your aligners prior to mealtime can also help to avoid eating-related damage and soiling.
