How to Take Better Care of Your Invisalign Trays
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
If you have Invisalign, it’s no secret that they can be pretty expensive. Although the results are worth it, the last thing that you want is to incur an additional expense while getting straighter teeth. Even though Invisalign trays are resilient, they aren’t indestructible. To ensure that your trays stay in good shape and give you the best results possible, we have a few essential tips for you to consider.
Put Them In a Case When You’re Not Wearing Them
One of the many benefits of Invisalign is that you can take them out when you are eating and brushing your teeth. To make sure that you don’t drop them or chip them in any way, make sure that whenever you aren’t wearing them that you store them in a case.
Handle Them With Care
You don’t have to wear white gloves when you are handling your Invisalign trays, but you should also handle them with care. Every time you take them out, make sure that you apply gentle pressure to remove them. Also, when you put them back in, don’t shove them in your mouth because the extra force could potentially bend them.
Dirty Invisalign trays are only going to lead to stained teeth and a mouth full of bacteria. Make sure that you rinse your trays before you put them in every time and also make sure that you brush them at least once a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush. The cleaner your Invisalign trays are, the better they will work, and the healthier the rest of your mouth will be.
Having straight teeth won’t just make you feel more confident, but they can also help your mouth stay healthier. To learn more about Invisalign and how to take better care of your trays, contact our Montreal office and call us at 514-875-7971.
