How Do I Clean My Invisalign Aligners?
The pros at Milestone Orthodontics have some tips to help you clean your Invisalign clear aligner trays:
- One method is to use the Invisalign cleaning system that we sell here at Milestone Orthodontics. This system is designed by Invisalign and helps remove plaque within 15 minutes and keeps your aligners odor-free, hygienic and clear.
- Another method of keeping your aligners clean is to purchase a denture cleaning product. While you eat, you can soak one aligner per one tablet of denture cleaning. At Milestone Orthodontics, we suggest leaving the aligner in the cleaning product for approximately one hour. This can be done up to twice a day.
- A third method of keeping your Invisalign trays clean is to use a baking soda product. It is suggested that you dissolve 1 tablespoon of baking soda in 1/2 Cup of water. Soak your trays in the baking soda water for about an hour. This method can be done twice a day.
- Another cleaning method is to brush your aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste. This will help keep them clean of particles as well as smelling fresh.
