Should I Buy EverSmile WhiteFoam/Aligner Cleaner for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a series of computer-generated aligners that fit tightly over upper and lower teeth. These aligners work to gradually straighten teeth over a period of time. Today, Invisalign is a great alternative to braces since both minor and more complicated crowding or spacing issues are treatable. Invisalign is also wonderful for patients who are looking for an appliance that is much less visible to the human eye because they are clear and barely noticeable to others.

Importance of Cleanliness with Invisalign

Regular dental hygiene to natural teeth is important and strongly recommended so that plaque has a lesser chance of sticking to Invisalign aligners. However, cleanliness of Invisalign aligners is just as important. Generally, since the same set of aligners are recommended to be worn two weeks at a time and only removed when eating, drinking, brushing or flossing it is exceptionally important to clean them properly. Excessive plaque build up can cause a cloudiness to appear on the aligners resulting in a foul smelling odor.

To ensure that aligners will not become cloudy, it is recommended that you brush aligners with lukewarm water—nothing too hot as hot water could potentially warp the plastic. Giving your aligners a frequent rinse every time they are removed during eating or drinking can also help to limit buildup of plaque and bacteria as well. Additionally, it is recommended that you purchase EverSmile WhiteFoam/Aligner Cleaner to ensure that Invisalign aligners are getting the supreme clean that they need. As an added bonus for your benefit, this solution also whitens your teeth while cleaning your aligners!
