The Invisalign straightening system is an incredible alternative to traditional metal braces, however like any orthodontic treatment, there is some regular maintenance that will help your teeth get straighter.
Unlike traditional brace systems, your Invisalign treatment is designed to be nearly invisible and removable, making them a convenient way to straighten your teeth and get a beautiful smile.
Keeping your Invisalign trays clean is important and can be kept clean easier than traditional braces. Like traditional braces, Invisalign trays can trap food particles and bacteria and hold them against the teeth. However unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign trays can be easily removed for better cleaning of the trays and your teeth.
During your day and while sleeping at night, your Invisalign tray accumulates bacterial plaque both within the tray and on the outside.
Rinsing and brushing your tray will help to prevent the build-up of bacteria that can develop over time if they are not properly cleaned.
Invisalign trays should be removed while eating so food doesn’t get trapped within the trays. Before replacing the tray, make sure to thoroughly clean and floss your teeth.
Regular daily cleaning and brushing your trays will keep them fresh, hygienic and looking great!
