Countless numbers of Americans have turned to Invisalign to improve their smiles while avoiding the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional metal braces. But do you know how best to care for your clear aligners? The Invisalign dentists at Galleria Dental Aesthetics are pleased to offer the latest Invisalign technology to our Arlington area patients. Please contact us today at 703-957-7069 to schedule an appointment.
Invisalign offers numerous advantages over metal braces, one of which is the relative ease with which you can care for your aligners. One of the Invisalign questions our Arlington dentists are most commonly asked concerns cleaning.
Fortunately, keeping your Invisalign clean is as simple as following your daily oral care ritual. Every time you brush and floss, simply take some time to brush your Invisalign aligners with your regular toothbrush and toothpaste. Some patients have reported success using retainer tablets, but the manufacturers of Invisalign do not recommend this. If your aligners do require extra care, the company sells special cleaning crystals that can remove plaque from your straighteners in only 15 minutes.
And remember, unlike braces, which remain in place while you eat, Invisalign straighteners are removable. They can, and should, be taken out at mealtime.
Whether you’re just considering Invisalign or are in the middle of your treatment, a little daily care goes a long way toward ensuring your long term success with invisible braces. To schedule an appointment with one of our Arlington Invisalign dentists, please contact Galleria Dental Aesthetics today at 703-957-7069.
