Daily Care with Invisalign Liners

Daily Care with Invisalign Liners

For people in Peterborough with misaligned teeth that don’t require or want metal braces, Invisalign aligners are becoming a popular alternative. At Dr. Christopher Moore and Associates, we’ve helped many people transition into this option and have a few daily care tips that are very important.

Don’t Drink Sugar or Acid Fluids

Since this is a less sturdy form of teeth correction than the standard, you’re going to need to be extra careful with them. This means avoiding sugar or acid fluids when you have the trays in. Without this step, you risk damaging them.

Don’t Eat with Them In

Unlike metal braces that are fixed to your teeth for the duration of their use, Invisalign braces can be removed with ease. Since even a small snack poses the risk of damaging or cracking your liners, we strongly suggest avoiding any food while wearing them.

Brush and Floss Often

Prepare yourself to brush and floss much more often when wearing this product. Although this is a step that is necessary with braces of all kinds, remember that these are more delicate products.

Think about it:

You’re going to be wearing aligners after your meals, meaning there’s a chance that food will get stuck in them. In fact, this will happen often, so get into the habit of cleaning your teeth more scrupulously. After these periods of cleaning, you should be putting them back on immediately.
