How do I clean Invisalign aligners?
Always rinse your aligners as soon as they are removed from your mouth. It is recommended that you soak your aligner trays with the Invisalign brand crystal cleaning solution every day. This solution removes the bacteria from the aligners. Use a soft bristle toothbrush (not your toothbrush that you use daily) to lightly sweep away any debris that remains after the soak. After soaking, rinse off the aligners and place back in your mouth.
How long do I wear each set of aligners?
This varies according to your treatment plan. Generally, aligners are work for two weeks and exchanged for the next set. In some cases, aligners may be worn for as little as a week before they’re switched out. This will depend on your specific treatment plan.
Does Invisalign fit an active lifestyle?
Invisalign is a great choice for an active lifestyle! Your aligners can be worn during nearly any activity, removing them only for eating and cleaning. Invisalign aligners can be worn comfortably while playing sports. When it comes to contact sports, you can remove the aligner and wear a mouthguard that Dr. Jennifer may recommend. Invisalign aligners can also be removed for special occasions if you prefer to do so.
