Proper upkeep and good oral hygiene are essential in keeping your Invisalign aligners clean, invisible and odor free. The aligners can be easily removed for eating and drinking, however, failing to properly clean your aligners afterwards can result in discoloration and a buildup of bacteria.
To maintain clarity, it is good to periodically clear debris from your aligners with a soft toothbrush and water. Do not use toothpaste due to abrasives that can create micro abrasions that will make your aligners look cloudy and dull.
Do not use denture cleaners to clean aligners and do not soak your aligners in mouthwash. These products can damage the surface of the plastic causing it to become more visible, sometimes making the teeth look somewhat yellow.
