Wear the Invisalign aligners at all times, remove only for eating or drinking (except for water).
Remove Invisalign aligners for brushing and flossing
After each meal, sweets or soft drinks, brush or rinse your mouth before placing the Invisalign aligners in again.
Wear the Invisalign aligners for around 22 hours a day for optimal results.
On special occasions like weekend parties or dinners you can remove them for few hours.
Keep away from hot or boiling water, bleach and other extreme cleansers.
Store the future Invisalign aligners in a cool dry place.
When removing the Invisalign aligners do not wrap them in tissues, toilet paper, just place them in the Invisalign container provided.
If an attachment comes off please call us to replace it within a week.
In order to correct crowding, some filing of the tooth enamel may be necessary. This is painless, and does not affect the health of your teeth.
Prior to receive a filling or restoration on any tooth while having your Invisalign treatment please consult us.
Keep Invisalign aligners and/or container away from dogs or pets.
Drink plenty of tap water.
Changing Invisalign Aligners
If a tray develops an opaque film that is difficult to remove with regular brushing, place it in white vinegar for 15 minutes then brush and rinse with cold water.
Change your Invisalign aligner every 2 weeks.
Put the used Invisalign aligner back on its bag, do not lose them as they may be required in the future.
Clench into the Invisalign aligners frequently (in particular during the first 2 days) to make sure there are no air gaps between the aligners and your teeth.
Invisalign aligners worn less than 21 hours a day, will need to be wear for 3 weeks instead, before replacing for the new sets.
Invisalign aligners should feel loose and comfortable before moving to the next set of aligners.
If, at the end of the two week period, you have not worn the aligner full time, or if a space remains between a tooth and the aligner, do not switch to the next aligner – continue the same aligner for another week. If the aligner still does not fit well, please call the office for an appointment, and continue wearing the same aligner.
If an Invisalign cracks, just keep wearing it until they are due for change; unless they fully break, then move to the next set earlier, but wear them for 3 weeks.
if you lose an aligner after 5 days, just move to the next set, but wear it for longer than recommended, or call us.
