One of the most essential facts regarding Invisalign aligners to remember is that they need cleaning. Even if the aligners have to be removed after a few weeks, they still need to be cleaned. Otherwise, you will wear a filthy, smelly set of aligners that might influence your future treatment.
If you do not properly care for the Invisalign aligners, you might struggle with the growth of bacteria that produces smells, aligns decoloration, and damages the health of your teeth. These aligners, much like your teeth, need to clean every day to ensure that you receive optimum treatment.
Here’s what a typical day should look like for an Invisalign maintenance:
In the warm water, put a soft, non-scented soap and whisk until suds have formed. Soak for around 30 minutes in the solution. Brush and rinse before you put it in your mouth.
Vinegar and Water
Use three parts of water with one part of white distilled vinegar. Soak and rinse for approximately 20 minutes before brushing. Rinse carefully to prevent the persistent taste of vinegar.
Baking Soda Solution
In 1/2 cup of water combine a spoonful of baking soda until it is in a consistent mixture. Put the trays in the solution for sixty minutes then vigorously brush until there is no residue. Baking Soda includes the active component for the purification or whitening of sodium bicarbonate.
Mix the same quantities of hydrogen peroxide and water and then soak the trays for 30 minutes. Put it completely in your mouth and rinse before placing.
These cleansers are supplied with tablets or dissolved powder in water. It is an efficient cleaning solution aimed at tooth plaque and bacteria. The bottom line is that the alternatives above are more expensive.
