Cleaning Your Invisalign Aligners

Orthodontic Treatment Roswell GA

Invisalign represents one of the most innovative and popular options in orthodontic treatment. Straightening your teeth has never been easier using Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners that can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. However, while Invisalign is certainly more preferred and convenient than metal braces, it still requires some attention and care.

Your aligners get removed each day so that you can clean your teeth and gums the way they deserve. To avoid sabotaging your teeth cleaning efforts, however, it is very important to also clean your aligner trays before putting them back in your mouth. Failure to clean your aligners can lead to extra oral bacteria, stuck food particles and staining. To avoid oral health issues such as bad breath, decay and gum disease during or after your Invisalign treatment, follow these tips on cleaning your aligners:

Utilize the Invisalign Cleaning System
We often recommend using the Invisalign cleaning system to clean your aligners, which relies on special crystals to remove plaque in just 15 minutes. You may also brush your aligners with toothpaste under lukewarm water. Please avoid soaking your aligners in mouthwash or harsh ingredients.

Brush and Floss After Eating
Cleaning your teeth after you consume foods and before you put your aligners back in will prevent your aligners from getting yellow or smelly.

Avoid Staining Drinks
You can drink while you are wearing your aligners. However, certain beverages like coffee and red wine can stain your clear aligners and your teeth, which would defeat the advantage of wearing discreet and unnoticeable orthodontics.

Store Aligners in Their Case
When your aligners aren’t in your mouth, they should be safely stored in the provided case. It is far too common for patients to wrap their trays in a napkin during meals and accidently throw them away.

Need more tips on how to care for your Invisalign aligners? Keep in mind that each set of aligners are carefully fabricated to move your teeth into better position over time. Failure to wear your aligners (or care for them) could delay your overall treatment time.  Call Dr. Mitzi Morris to schedule your Invisalign consult.

  • Dr. Morris is an excellent dentist. Her ability to relate to her patients makes her a stand-out amongst those in her profession. She practices dentistry with superior technique and care. Her staff is friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I feel she hires only the best! One special mention: I suffer from panic attacks at times- along with claustrophobia. Dr. Morris is the first dentist I have ever had who helped calm my fears. Thus, my experience exceeded expectations! Great service!

  • Definitely would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone. She has been my dentist for over 8 years! Dr. Morris is extremely personable and is serious about the completing the best care possible. Great established dental team! Very accommodating to your schedule.

  • Great and very educational experience. Compared to my last two dentists this experience blows them both out of the water. The staff is very friendly, and very helpful. I had to go in for a total of four visits a few weeks apart from each other. They made me feel very comfortable the entire time and kept making sure I was pleased. Getting a deep cleaning went very smoothly. It was also brought to my attention that the way I was flossing was incorrect. And have since changed methods. I worked specifically with Dr. Morris. She was very nice, and took the time to explain things. Which is a huge plus for me. Dr. Morris and the staff members worked effortlessly together. I was comfortable enough to sit back and relax, strangely enough, while having cavities drilled and fillings put in. Billing and scheduling appointments, as well as follow up for confirmation of upcoming appointments was very easy. I will say my favorite part of the experience was how friendly of an environment the staff has created. That alone is deserving of a 5 star review, and the rest is honestly icing on the cake. I highly recommend this practice on all fronts and will continue using them!

  • I transferred from a long-term and very good relationship with my former dentist because of a move, and I was a little apprehensive about a new dentist. Dr. Morris has been great. She is friendly, patient-concerned and the office is new, comfortable and clean. Everyone seems to enjoy working there. I feel like I'm in good hands!

  • Dr. Morris and her staff are very professional. Additionally, she as well as her staff have an excellent "bedside manner." The office is new and well equipped. If one has an appointment and an earlier one opens up, Dr. Morris offers it to her patients as she did with my last appointment.

  • I have never met a staff so nice and charming. This staff will make you feel comfortable and relaxed in Dr. Morris's Spa like office and everyone is professional and approachable too. Andrea R. explained the process of my appointment and procedures and is definitely a highly-educated and thorough dental hygenist -- SHE IS A ROCKSTAR. I'm so glad that Dr. Morris and her dental team have been my "go-to" for the last 5 years, and I wont be going anywhere else! Overall - A++ Dr. Morris...highly recommended to my family and friends!!!

  • I've been a patient of Dr. Mitzi Morris for many years, and recommend her without reservation. The office is modern. clean and spacious. The staff has always been welcoming and very helpful. And the women who work for her as dental technicians are fantastic; they do a professional and effective deep cleaning, but with a careful, gentle touch. It is clear to me that Dr. Morris reads her professional journals and upgrades her practice to stay very current with the latest best practices in dentistry. (I have had some dentists who stopped updating their practices after leaving dental school!) With Dr. Morris you can count on receiving the very latest dental technology. Her prices are very fair, and I have never been surprised by an unexpected cost or had problems with insurance not covering services rendered.

    Bruce C
  • I have never experienced an office so down to earth, so outgoing and so willing to satisfy. If you've grown to dread the dentist then lay down your sword and give this office a shot.
