Properly Cleaning Your Invisalign Trays

Published on May 23rd, 2018

Straight teeth never go out of style, especially if they make you more confident. Invisalign in Chicago is a great alternative to metal braces; all of the straightening benefits without the look of braces. One important facet of having Invisalign trays is cleaning them on a regular basis so they do not become stained or smelly. Here’s what you should know about Invisalign and how to clean your trays.

First of All, What Can Invisalign Treat?

Depending on your mouth, Invisalign may be a great option for you. Some commonly treated cases include crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite and gap teeth. Consult with our professionals and they will determine whether or not Invisalign is a good treatment option for you.

Cleaning Your Aligners

Because you wear your trays at all times besides eating, you’ll want to rinse your aligners both in the morning and at night. Also scrub them gently with a toothbrush to get rid of any excess food or debris that has lingered throughout the day. There is also an Invisalign cleaning system that is useful in getting rid of discoloration, smells and leftover food. While your trays are out, keep them covered as to eliminate the chances of airborne bacteria from getting into your trays. It’s also a good idea to brush and floss your teeth as often as possible before you put your trays back into your mouth.

Don’t wait another day to get a confident smile! Contact the Dental Professionals of Lincoln Park if you have any questions about getting Invisalign in Chicago.
