1. Clean your teeth prior to starting your Invisalign treatment
Your teeth as well as the entire mouth should be kept clean and hygienic at all times. Instead, you will have the same oral issues in the future. Brushing on a constant schedule is also necessary to maintain your teeth healthily as well as hygienically.
Prior to actually placing the Invisalign back on your teeth, make absolutely sure your teeth are actually clean. This aids in the maintenance of your dental hygiene.
2. Put on your Invisalign for 22 hours a day or as prescribed by the doctor
Invisalign works by gradually applying pressure to your crooked teeth. Moreover, the outcome of aligner treatment is also controlled by you to some extent. You must wear these for a minimum of 18 to 22 hours every single day. You should only take them out when you're about to eat or sip something or clean your teeth.
3. Wash your Invisalign at least once every day
To keep your aligners looking clean as well as smelling excellent, you should immerse them in some soap water at least every day. You can clean your aligners with dental cleansers or Invisalign's cleaning kits. After you've finished soaking them then get a brush and try to brush away all food particles along with a plaque.
Make sure the toothbrush you're using isn't the one you are already using to brush your real teeth. Once you are done with brushing, swish them around in lukewarm water before putting them back in your mouth. This can help you keep the food particles from growing and causing cavities in your natural teeth.
4. Schedule your vacation keeping the tray change timeline in mind
Throughout the Invisalign procedure, you must replace your correcting tray once after a certain number of weeks. During the process, you should not miss and prolong this step as it may increase your treatment duration. Therefore, if you're planning to go on a trip, bring your fresh Invisalign tray with you as well and replace it only when it's required.
1. Put your Invisalign in a safe place when not in use
While you're not wearing your Invisalign, you should keep them in the aligner box that will be provided by us. In case you keep them out laying around in the open then you are actually exposing them to atmospheric infections and bacterial growth.
Furthermore, you're more prone to losing or harming your Invisalign if you do not really keep them in their case. That is why you ought to have your Invisalign case always accessible. Just in case you forgot to keep your Invisalign in its case and left it out for a few hours then you must keep them in a cleaner and wash them first before placing them back in your mouth.
2. Caffeine Overconsumption should be avoided
Do you drink cups of coffee or tea frequently during a long day of work just to stay awake? Then, with aligners, you may need to reconsider this practice.
While using Invisalign invisible braces, our specialist may ask you to break this chain as too much caffeine is not good for your teeth. Moreover, the only liquid you should consume while wearing this is just fresh water. Tea, coffee, and wine are amongst the worst drinks to consume as it stains your Invisalign.
Furthermore, because of these stains, people may easily notice you are wearing aligners. Not just this, but Invisalign’s objective will be lost, and its quality will be ruined. As a result, you should consider whether a hot cup of tea or coffee is worth ruining your Invisalign.
3. Cleaning Invisalign with Hard Chemicals or Products
In case you wash your Invisalign with a hard brush, then you may end up scratching them. Also, then those scratches will be well visible and ruin the appearance of your aligners. Additionally, you shouldn't wash Invisalign with a perfumed or acidic cleaner. Rather, wash them with Invisalign cleansers.
