Keeping your Invisalign® aligners clean is crucial for maintaining their transparency and your oral hygiene. Gently remove the aligners and rinse them under lukewarm water whenever you remove them from your mouth.

  • Avoid Using Hot Water: Using hot water can warp the aligners, compromising their effectiveness. Stick to lukewarm water to prevent any damage.
  • Brushing Technique: Brush the aligners using a soft-bristle toothbrush and a mild, clear antibacterial soap. Gently brush the aligners both inside and outside, removing any plaque or residue.
  • Say No to Colored Soaps: Avoid using colored or scented soaps, as they might stain or leave an unwanted taste on the aligners. Opt for clear, unscented soap instead.
  • Rinsing Thoroughly: After brushing, rinse the aligners thoroughly to ensure no soap residue remains. This will prevent any potential aftertaste.
  • Storage Care: When not wearing your aligners, store them in their designated case. This prevents loss and shields them from potential contaminants.
  • Regular Maintenance: In addition to daily cleaning, periodically soak your aligners in a denture cleaner or Invisalign aligner cleaning crystals. This helps remove stubborn stains and keeps them looking clear.
