How Should You Look After Your New Invisalign® Trays?

Jun 12

Invisalign is far more than a cosmetic procedure. It's an experimental therapy for people who want to improve the appearance of their teeth. Patients with chewing problems, crowded teeth, or overbites are among them.


The first step toward a straighter smile is to begin orthodontic treatment with Invisalign®. You'll benefit from wearing nearly invisible aligner trays with Invisalign clear aligner trays while your teeth are gradually shifted into their optimal positions over time.


Like any other orthodontic treatment, Invisalign necessitates your dedication to following particular instructions to get the desired outcomes. You'll get the most out of your time and effort when you endeavor to keep your aligners in good shape and preserve them from damage and degeneration.


River District Smiles Dentistry in Rockhill, SC, has the knowledge and experience to provide Invisalign to patients. With modern technology, our staff determines your orthodontic needs and prepares a personalized Invisalign treatment plan to improve dental function and beauty.


You'll reach your goals with Invisalign by wearing a series of clear trays called aligners that are tailored to fit around all of your teeth's surfaces. Because you'll be responsible for switching to a new tray every week or two, it's critical to know how to handle and care for your trays so they can produce the results you anticipate.


Every morning, clean the trays.


Clean your trays every morning to start your day with clean teeth and fresh breath. While you're sleeping, bacteria can build up on your trays. Cleaning your trays eliminates the film that can cause bad breath and, if left in place, create the ideal habitat for tooth disease.


To clean your trays, use a soft toothbrush to gently brush the trays, being sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies. You can also soak your trays in Invisalign cleaning crystals or mild denture cleaner for about 15 minutes. Be sure to rinse the trays thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth.


At night, brush your teeth and clean your trays.


It would be best to brush your teeth at least twice a day, but it's even better to brush after every meal or snack. When you brush at night before going to bed, be sure to give your trays a good cleaning. Then, you'll start the next day with clean teeth and trays.


To clean your trays at night:

  1. Follow the same steps you would in the morning.
  2. Brush your teeth first, then brush your trays. You can also soak your trays in Invisalign cleaning crystals or mild denture cleaner for about 15 minutes.
  3. Rinse the trays thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth.


Using lukewarm water, clean the trays.


Ensure you know how to clean your Invisalign trays properly if you're taking the time to do so. To clean your trays, use lukewarm water because severe heat or cold can cause the plastic trays to stretch or contract. A minor adjustment in the form of your trays can significantly impact their efficiency and the results you get.


Avoid putting colorful drinks on trays.


If you leave colored drinks in your mouth while drinking, their dye may stain your trays. To avoid harming the appearance of your existing set of trays, permanently remove your trays before drinking any form of beverage.


If you're using Invisalign to get the smile you've always wanted, be sure to follow these simple tips so you can get the most out of your treatment. And if you have any questions, be sure to ask your dentist or orthodontist. They'll be happy to help you keep your smile looking its best.
