You will wear an Invisalign brace a lot of hours in a day. At least 22 hours a day to be exact. Therefore, it is important that you clean your braces properly. In this blog we’ll tell you more about cleaning your Invisalign.
Cleaning your Invisalign braces takes no time at all
As the title says, cleaning your Invisalign braces is a piece of cake. It’s best to clean the aligners with lukewarm water and a brush. For example, with a soft toothbrush. Do this at the times when you brush your teeth, that way you definitely won’t forget. This is really enough to clean the braces properly.
A great advantage of Invisalign is that you can easily take the braces off and just clean your teeth. In fact, with lock braces, keeping your teeth clean is much more complicated. Just try cleaning your teeth between the metal blocks, there is nowhere to start. With aligners, the health of your teeth is not compromised. You just take off the aligner and brush your teeth. So you can continue to floss between your teeth as well.
Keep your invisalign aligners clean
When you wear aligners, we recommend that you brush your teeth after every meal. This is not a requirement but it is a piece of advice. This is the best way to keep your braces clean and prevent food particles from getting between your teeth and the braces.
Do you occasionally want to give your aligner a deep clean? Then you could opt for effervescent tablets specifically for aligners. We would be happy to tell you more about that in the practice.
