It's essential to make sure you floss between each tooth when using Invisalign aligners. This will help remove plaque and food particles that may be stuck in the crevices of the aligners. Additionally, it will keep your Invisalign aligners looking their best for longer periods. With Invisalign, you have no excuse not to brush your teeth or floss, as the aligners are removable. Fortunately, brushing and flossing with Invisalign is just as easy as brushing and flossing without Invisalign.
Follow your usual brushing and flossing routine during treatment to keep your aligners fresh and prevent any oral health issues. We also suggest brushing your teeth after every meal if possible to remove debris from your teeth and stop them from coming into contact with the aligners. If you can't brush your teeth after eating or drinking, rinsing your mouth with water or chewing on sugar-free gum quickly may help. Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible. People may not even notice that you're wearing them.
You can take them off for eating and drinking, for brushing your teeth and flossing, or for special occasions. There are no metal brackets or wires that could irritate the mouth or break. To ensure optimal oral hygiene while wearing Invisalign, it's important to brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to gently brush all surfaces of your teeth. Make sure to brush the inside surfaces of the aligners as well.
You should also floss at least once a day to remove plaque and food particles from between your teeth. It's also important to rinse your mouth with water after eating or drinking anything other than water. This will help remove any food particles that may be stuck in the aligners. Additionally, it's important to clean your aligners regularly with a mild soap and lukewarm water. By following these simple instructions, you can ensure that you maintain optimal oral hygiene while wearing Invisalign clear braces.
