How to Care for Your Invisalign Aligners

You know how to take care of your teeth. Healthy brushing habits and a dependable flossing schedule keep teeth strong and looking good. For those with Invisalign, caring for your aligners is a lot like caring for your teeth. There are certain ways to keep your Invisalign aligners fresh for everyday wear and certain instructions that should be followed when cleaning your aligners. The dos’ and don’ts of Invisalign care are important to follow.

  • Do – Rinse your aligners before replacing after eating. The sugars left on your teeth from food or drinks can get trapped under the aligners if you don’t rinse with plain water.
  • Don’t – Use toothpaste to clean your aligners. Toothpaste is too abrasive and will scratch the Invisalign aligners.
  • Do – Use dish soap such as Dawn to clean your aligners. Dish soap is much softer than toothpaste and won’t scratch the aligners. Denture cleanser tablets are also a good choice.
  • Don’t – Leave your aligners out in the open if you have pets. Pets see Invisalign aligners as a fun, new chew toy and will destroy the aligners.
  • Do – Place your aligners in their case when not in your mouth. Getting into the habit of placing them in their case when not worn will ensure that your aligners won’t get lost, broken, or chewed by your pets.
  • Don’t – Hesitate to call KCC Orthodontics if you lose or break an aligner. We will instruct you on whether to move to the next aligner based on your treatment plan or to come in to see us.

Invisalign aligners need to be properly cared for. By adhering to these do’s and don’ts, you’ll be sure to keep your treatment plan on track. Visit our Invisalign treatment page on our website for more information on the best way to care for your aligners, and don’t hesitate to call KCC Orthodontics to ask a question about Invisalign.

Retainers are for L I F E , as long as you want to keep your teeth straight and your bite sitting properly.

Retainer wear is crucial to the longevity of your orthodontic treatment results!

🔹 wear retainers everyday
🔹 wear them full time or night time only (depending what Dr. G informs you)
🔹 wear retainers on vacation
🔹 wear retainers after you get married
🔹 wear retainers at your friends house

& IF they break, get lose, or eaten by the dog - call us right away! We are more than happy to get you a new retainer made so that you don’t have to go through orthodontic treatment again.

Wondering what to expect at your first orthodontic appointment? Here it is!

You'll be introduced by our team at the front desk. The ladies will get you checked in and make sure your paperwork is complete.

Then Carmen (pictured left) will come introduce herself and get you (or your child) to take initial records.

After that, Amy or Nessa (pictured middle and right) will introduce themselves and bring you into one of our Treatment Coordinating offices.

Here, the doctor will provide an assessment of your teeth and bite and talk to you and the treatment coordinator about the treatment plan.

You'll have a chance to ask questions during this time!

Our treatment coordinator will wrap up your appointment by presenting estimated treatment fees and answering any final questions.

If you'd like, we can go ahead and get you scheduled then before you leave!

Have any additional questions? We're always here to help! (281) 392-0888.
