It’s your life and you deserve the chance to enjoy it without metal braces getting in the way. With our Invisalign invisible braces, there’s a better, more modern way to straighten your teeth. Keep exploring to learn why it could be the best choice for you.
NO ONE NEEDS TO KNOW
Invisalign Teen ® aligners are made of a smooth, clear plastic that is virtually invisible! Your friends probably won’t even know you’re wearing them. Instead of hiding behind a mouth of metal, you’ll enjoy the confidence of showing that smile every day. And that can make for a better social life overall.
EAT WITH FREEDOM
You probably have friends with braces who aren’t allowed to chew gum or eat certain foods like popcorn and whole apples. With Invisalign Teen, the aligners are completely removable, allowing you to eat all of your favorite foods whenever you want. This also means you can easily keep brushing and flossing as you normally would for proper oral hygiene. Try that with braces.
KEEP DOING WHAT YOU LOVE
Whether you play sports or a musical instrument, a mouth full of metal can hold you back from enjoying the things you want to. It’s hard to perform at your best knowing you could get hit in the mouth with a ball, or cut your lip trying to hit that note on the trumpet. Invisalign Teen, which are invisible braces, helps you focus on doing what you do best—being a teen!
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR ALIGNERS
Some of the most popular benefits of Invisalign are the ability to remove your trays to eat and their clear, discreet design. While these features are great, it is important to keep your teeth and Invisalign trays clean and well maintained in order to reap the full benefits. To help you throughout your Invisalign journey, we have put together this guide on keeping your Invisalign system clean!
When to Clean You Trays
You should clean your teeth and Invisalign trays every time you remove your trays. While you should wear your trays for about 22 hours a day for maximum efficiency, you should always remove them when you eat or drink anything besides still water. Generally, you’ll want to clean your teeth and your trays before you put them back in, which will be at least three times a day, or after every meal.
How to Clean Your Trays
It is important to stick to a regular routine that includes keeping your teeth as well as your Invisalign trays. You’ll need to add a few extra steps to your oral care routine, but caring for your trays isn’t too complicated! There are a few important pointers to remember.
While toothpaste is great for your teeth, the ingredients in it can stain or scratch your Invisalign trays. Toothpaste often contains whitening ingredients, which can leave your clear aligners dull or cloudy. It is best to use an antiseptic rinse or soak for your Invisalign trays. Your orthodontist will be able to recommend a few options!
You’ll also want to brush your trays, but it is important to use two different toothbrushes – one for your teeth and one for your trays! If you use the same toothbrush, you risk damaging your tray with leftover toothpaste. Typically, soft bristled brushes are better for your trays, and stiffer brushes are better for thoroughly cleaning your teeth.
Keeping Your Teeth Clean
It is important to keep your teeth clean underneath your trays. You’ll want to brush and floss your teeth every time you take your trays out. We recommend a toothpaste with fluoride to keep your teeth clean and white throughout your treatment. Flossing is also extremely important, as any food that remains in your teeth can damage or stain your aligners when you put them back in. Keeping your teeth and Invisalign trays clean will help ensure that your treatment goes smoothly and efficiently.
