Everything you need to know about Invisalign Cleaning Crystals
Invisalign treatment is one of the most popular orthodontic treatments. This is because you don’t have to have a fixed brace attached to your teeth and worry about what food you can and can’t eat, but also when you are wearing the Invisalign aligner it is virtually invisible; you can get the smile of your dreams without people even knowing.
Even though you don’t need to think about brace care while it’s fitted to your teeth as with other fixed orthodontics appliances, it’s still important to understand how to care for your Invisalign aligner for your oral hygiene and the effectiveness of the treatment.
Invisalign Cleaning Crystals
One of the best ways to keep your Invisalign aligners clean is by using Invisalign Cleaning Crystals. They are great for cleaning and disinfecting your Invisalign aligners and removing plaque and bacteria on the surface of the aligners.
We recommend that you soak your aligners with these crystals daily to clean them thoroughly. As they only take 15 minutes to clean your aligners they are convenient even for a busy, everyday life. If you don’t clean your aligners enough it can be possible for the bacteria build-up to become harmful and cause inflammation to your gums.
Other Methods to Clean Aligners
Invisalign Cleaning Crystals are not the only way to clean aligners. While they are an effective way, other solutions can also prove just as effective.
Retainer Cleaning Solutions
Retainers and Invisalign aligners are quite similar and some people can even get confused between the two. Even so, a retainer cleaning solution like Retainer Brite is a great alternative to Invisalign Cleaning Crystals. Make sure to ask your orthodontist for their advice before you use any alternative.
Even with a specific cleaner it is advised to use a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any food debris or plaque that may be in the aligner. We would never recommend that this be the only method of cleaning as bacteria can still form in any spaces of the aligner.
Before you start any orthodontic treatment it is important to understand how to keep the appliance clean. If you have any questions contact us on 0161 998 2622 to find how to keep your aligner fresh, clean, and bacteria-free.
