Clean your aligners prior to each insertion. Use a soft-bristle toothbrush with water and a small amount of toothpaste. You may find it easiest to clean the outside of your aligners by brushing them while they are still on your teeth, then remove your aligners to clean the inside surfaces.
Do NOT use denture cleaners to clean aligners.
Do NOT soak them in mouthwash. These products can damage the surface of the aligner, causing it to become dull and more visible.
1. Remove your aligners for eating and drinking. (You do not need to remove your aligners to drink cool water.)
2. Brush and floss your teeth after each meal or snack prior to re-inserting your aligners. If you don’t have access to your cleaning system or a toothbrush, you can simply rinse your mouth, and then clean your aligners by holding them under warm running water. It is not the best way to clean, but it works if absolutely necessary. Be sure to thoroughly clean your aligners at your earliest convenience.
3. If you have any questions regarding hygiene techniques, please consult your dental practitioner.
4. Regular dental checkups and cleaning are recommended for the continued health of your teeth and gums.
