My Invisalign Blog: Part 3

Brush up on brushing up

The BIG question: How do you keep them clean? I get asked this all the time!

Wearing your aligners 22-23 hours a day for a week is going to result in you feeling like you have Shrek breath! Don’t panic! I have a few tips for you:

  1. Give your aligners a brush morning and night, like you would your teeth.
  2. Rinse the aligners under a cold tap occasionally
  3. I use a soft toothbrush with a touch of mouthwash to freshen them as and when needed
  4. Retainer cleaner is a life saver!! I use it twice a week for 10 minutes to keep them smelling fresh.
  5. Make sure you keep your teeth cleaning routine the same, floss as normal; you need the freshest mouth you can possibly maintain!
  6. Hygienist appointments will help you feel refreshed so I recommend keeping these regular during your treatment.
