How to Keep Invisalign Braces Clean

Let’s think about it for a moment- you’re going to be wearing your Invisalign Braces from Modern Family Dental Care for the majority of the day. You’re going to want to keep those clean! But how do you go about doing that?

There are many different options that can help you practice excellent oral hygiene while you’re straightening out your teeth.

Cleaning Systems

The company that makes these aligners also created a cleaning system for them. These contain some crystals that when combined with water can create an effecting cleaning solution. When this is used regularly, it can help to fight plaque on the retainer itself.

Toothbrushes

You just can’t beat the good old toothbrushes. You can regularly brush your retainers, although, using toothpaste directly on your retainers isn’t suggested. There are some abrasives in toothpastes that are fine for your teeth, but not so great for your retainers. Patients have also been known to use a mixture of water and dish detergent and al alternative to toothpaste.

Soaking Solutions

There are a lot of options for soaking solutions at your local drug stores. It is advised that whatever you decide to use, you must pay special attention to the directions and only keep them in there for the amount of time the instructions tell you.

Denture and Invisalign Products

Another option for those with Invisalign braces is to use denture cleaners. They come in powders, tablets, foams, and crystals. They also have oxidizing agents that help to remove stains while killing microorganisms.
