The Fundamentals When It Comes to Using Invisalign

Deep down, you know invisible aligners are heaven-sent to get the beautiful smile you desire. But if anyone hasn’t informed you about the fundamental tips of using them, you may not get the result you look for. See how to use the invisible aligners for best results.

Don’t clean with toothpaste

Never make the mistake of cleaning the invisible aligners with toothpaste. It would do them more harm than good. Toothpaste should only be used for your teeth. The best way to clean invisible aligners is with vinegar. Consider using baking soda if you can’t find vinegar near you.

Wear twenty-two hours daily

For best results, shoot at wearing the aligners hours a day. Stop having lots of snacks break that demands you to take off your aligners frequently. The longer they stay in your mouth, the faster your treatment process.

Frequently change invisible aligners

The standard is to wear a set of aligners for 2 weeks and move on to another.  Figure out what time to change the Invisalign from a trained orthodontist.  Never be in a hurry to change your aligners without first consulting an orthodontist.

Remove aligners with tray removal tool

The best way to remove invisible aligners is with a tray removal tool. It is not only safe to use but also hygienic. Feel free to go around with a tray removal tool to remove your invisible aligners. Needles to say, it is easy to use.

Practice with the invisible aligners in your mouth

First-timers may find talking with the aligners a bit difficult. So it’s best to practice speaking with them in your mouth in private. It will boost your confidence when speaking in public.

Every device has its manuals, so does an invisible aligner. Use the tips to get the best out of your aligners.
