Your Invisalign® trays offer you much more comfort than traditional braces do. However, like your regular teeth or traditional retainer, they need to be cleaned on a consistent basis to prevent staining and odors. Since Invisalign aligners and trays will collect the same food particles and debris as your teeth, it’s important that you use the Invisalign® Cleaning System crystals.
The Invisalign® Cleaning System is composed of proprietary cleaning crystals that create a soaking solution when added to water. To begin the process, remove your aligners and run them under lukewarm water to dislodge food particles. Combine the crystals with enough water to submerge your tray. Soak the aligners for about 15 minutes and remove them from the solution. Rinse them one more time with warm water and scrub the tray with a toothbrush to remove any remaining debris. This is also a good time to make sure that you brush and floss your teeth, as well. Rinse under warm water a final time and put the trays back into your mouth.
It’s important to repeat this process often to increase the longevity of your trays and ensure the best outcome from the investment you make into a beautiful smile.
