If you have decided on the Invisalign treatment in Dubai, then you’re probably wondering how to take care of these clear braces. Most patients complain of discoloration or smell towards the end of two to three weeks.
With proper care, we can prevent these from happening. In this blog, we’ll show you some the best practices to keep your trays clean and sanitized:
Brush your teeth and your aligners
It’s best to brush your aligners, whenever you brush your teeth. That means that you’ll be brushing them at least twice a day. For the best results, we recommend having a separate toothbrush for your Invisalign trays. It’s also best to use cold water instead of hot water, as it may warp the plastic of the aligners. Be sure to brush the entire tray inside and out, making sure to rinse it out completely.
Store them properly
When removing your Invisalign alignment trays for any reason, be sure to store them carefully in their storage case. If you do not have a case in hand, the second-best alternative is to place them in a glass of cold or room temperature water.
To keep smell away, and improve the freshness of your aligners, store them in diluted antimicrobial mouthwash while you eat. This helps reduce the buildup of plaque and will help improve your breath.
Brush your aligners after every meal
Although you should brush your alignment trays twice a day, the best way to avoid discoloration and smells is to brush them between meals. If you don’t have the time to brush them after each meal, then you can take them out and rinse your mouth thoroughly, cleaning your aligners with cool water.
Contact your dentist if your aligner is damaged
If you notice your aligners are damaged, call your dentist immediately. Do not wear your damaged trays as this will have an adverse effect to your treatment.
