If you’ve decided to invest in Invisalign Luton, then it’s more than likely that you’re wondering how to keep your aligners in tip-top condition. Well, don’t worry because the team here at Vogue Dental Care have put together all the essential information you’re going to need to keep your aligners looking fabulous!
Why Invisalign Luton?
Invisalign has easily become the most popular teeth-straightening system on the market. With TikTokers and Instagramers all flashing their aligner smiles, wearing braces has actually become cool; its laid-back and simple approach to straightening teeth has become a winner. You no longer have to attend check-ups all the time, hide your smile from photos or worry about braces getting in the way of cleaning and eating. With all that in mind, let’s look more at what you can do to make sure your aligners last.
Cleaning – part one
First up, we’re going to look at how you can take care of your aligners by cleaning them correctly. If your Invisalign aligners aren’t cleaned well enough, they will begin to discolour and haze; this will then make them more visible to others, so it’s something you really want to be keeping on top of from the beginning.
The cleaning process is very simple and involves two stages.
First, you must brush your aligners with a soft-bristled brush and colourless toothpaste. You don’t need much toothpaste at all, maybe the size of half a pea. Just brush along the inside and outside of the trays, but be really careful not to brush too harshly; you don’t want to damage the aligners.
We highly recommend that you invest in some sort of cleaning solution in which you can soak your aligners. It doesn’t have to be expensive or branded; a simple denture cleaner would do the trick. Most of these products will come with specific instructions on how to use them, so as long as you’re following the guidelines, you should be okay. However, if you’re worried about the product you’re using, feel free to drop in and clear it with us at the clinic.
Cleaning – part two
One thing that can sometimes be forgotten about when you begin your Invisalign journey is that your teeth must be kept clean too. Lots of patients return to us with early signs of gum disease because they start to neglect their gum health when they start taking care of their trays. It’s just as important now to be taking good care of your teeth as it was before you had your aligners. And when you think of the trays as being little greenhouses for germs to multiply on, you can see why getting your teeth clean is super important!
