Unless you’re thrilled at the prospect of having to wear a mouth full of metal braces to straighten your teeth, Invisalign is your best friend. As an easy and effective way to straighten your teeth without nicknames like “brace face,” Invisalign is ideal for adults with minimal alignment issues. To get the best results from your Invisalign, it’s important that you take the best care of them possible. From knowing how to clean them to where you should store them while you’re eating, this article will discuss a few ways for you to take care of your Invisalign trays. Read on to learn more.
One of the best ways for you to take care of your Invisalign trays is to clean them properly. You should be cleaning your trays every time you take them out— which will be probably around 5-7 times a day. To clean your trays after you eat, just rinse them off in warm water. However, when you clean them before bed and when you wake up in the morning, soak them in the cleaning solution that Dr. Nazila Bidabadi gave you.
Take Them Out When Wearing Mouthguards
If you play a contact sport that involves you wearing a mouthguard, make sure that you take out your Invisalign trays beforehand. Although you shouldn’t have a problem with your Invisalign trays fitting while wearing your mouthguard, they could smash between your teeth and cause them to become too tight.
One of the things Dr. Bidabadi sees patients do with their Invisalign trays is thrown them away on accident. To help make sure that your trays stay intact and that you don’t lose them, make sure to store them in the case that we give you. To help make sure you always have your case with you, try storing it in either your purse, briefcase, or even your glove box.
Taking care of your Invisalign trays is one of the best ways you can get a straighter smile. If you would like to learn more about how you can take care of your Invisalign trays, contact Dr. Nazila Bidabadi at Soft Touch Dentistry today!
