One of the many benefits of Invisalign clear aligners is that they are removable, so eating and enjoying meals are easier and more comfortable than ever. Simply remove your aligner trays before eating, and reinsert them when you’re done with your meal. However, we strongly recommend cleaning your teeth and aligner trays before and after meals to reduce the risk of cavities.
Tips For Cleaning & Invisalign After Care
Once you remove your Invisalign trays, we also recommend storing them in a container or safe place so they don't get damaged while not in use. For optimal results, we recommend wearing Invisalign 20–22 hours each day. Ideally, patients should only remove Invisalign when they’re brushing, flossing, or eating.
With Invisalign, you can enjoy your favorite foods unencumbered by metal wires and brackets. You don’t have to worry about food getting stuck in your braces, or metal detracting from your smile. And best of all, removable Invisalign trays promote better oral hygiene because the teeth and gums are more accessible for thorough brushing and flossing.
