Invisalign trays are designed to restore and transform your beautiful smile. They don’t put any restrictions on your food habits and your daily routine.
However, Invisalign aligners need proper attention, or they can get discoloured. Also, a buildup of bacteria can take place that can cause bad smell and damage your teeth. The best thing is, caring for your Invisalign trays is quite simple and will not take more than 20-25 minutes a day.
Here are some tips on how to clean your Invisalign trays.
Take out your Invisalign trays before brushing your teeth.First, brush your teeth and then brush your Invisalign trays properly. Also, rinse the trays every time you remove them. Rinsing Invisalign trays will remove plaque and dried saliva from the trays. You can also use antibacterial soap and a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean the trays. However, it will be better to ask your dentist in Surrey regarding which soap you can use.
Soak your aligners in a cleaner once every day for a few minutes. Take the Invisalign trays out of the liquid and brush it with a soft-bristled brush. But, don’t use the brush that you use to clean your teeth. Then rinse the trays properly before placing it back into your mouth. Ask your dentist in Surrey regarding which cleaner you should use to soak your aligners.
When you take out your Invisalign aligners, keep them in their case. If you leave them in the open space, they will be exposed to dust, debris, and bacteria. Moreover, they may get damaged.
Invisalign trays cannot handle the pressure of eating. So, remove your Invisalign trays before eating or drinking anything. However, you don’t need to remove them before drinking water.
In any case, make sure you keep them in your mouth for 20 to 22 hours a day.
One more thing, visit your dentist in Surrey every six months to get your Invisalign trays and teeth inspected and follow their recommendations.
