As you know, one of those very exciting details that puts a smile on almost everyone’s face when they learn more about Invisalign treatment is the fact that they come out of your mouth when you need to do things like brush your teeth and floss! So, from the get-go, you know that keeping things clean is not going to be a complicated or frustrating journey. However, you may still wonder what to expect and what’s going to be required of you to ensure you’re aligning your smile, as you’re protecting it (and protecting your aligner trays, too). Our Cleveland, TX team is happy to run through the basics with you, so you continue to see that this treatment truly does offer a long list of conveniences!
You’ll Need To Keep Up With Cleaning
Don’t worry, we won’t leave you to figure this one out! Instead, we’ll run through the details regarding how to keep your Invisalign treatment trays clean. Keep in mind that like the rest of your mouth, they can become coated with bacteria. It won’t smell very good and an accumulation of bacteria isn’t something you want against your teeth and gums every day, so it’s very important to remember to follow our instructions. Otherwise, issues like bad breath and even gingivitis and decay may pop up on the radar for your smile.
Cleaning Your Trays
You’ll want to rinse your Invisalign treatment trays once they’ve been removed from your mouth, whether to eat or as you’re getting ready for bed, etc. Throughout the day, rinsing them (and rinsing your smile) if you’re taking them out for a snack is important. As for the cleaning, we may have you wash them with soap and water or gently brush them with your toothbrush. We will also talk with you about an Invisalign treatment cleaning system, so you may also soak your trays.
Cleaning Your Smile
You want to keep your smile nice and clean, just like always. This means you will still need to brush twice every day. You’ll need to floss once a day, too. Fortunately, you can remove your trays to make this easy!
