We all know the importance of a healthy smile. Your smile is the first step of any social interaction and it adds to your personality. Hence, if you feel that you are not happy with your teeth and would like to fix your crooked teeth or crossbite or overbite, there is no time like the present to choose makeO toothsi’s clear aligners to get straight teeth.
The best thing about clear aligners is that they allow you to fix your orthodontic issues without letting the world know about them. To ensure that your clear aligners work effectively, it is important that you take good care of them.
Just got yourself a new set of clear teeth aligners and wondering how to maintain your clear aligners? Keep on reading as we share with you 5 aligner care tips that will make sure that your clear aligners are always squeaky clean.
- Rinse your clear aligners every time you remove them
You might be tempted to put your clear aligners back in their dry box without rinsing them when you remove them for your meals but that is the worst thing you can ever do. You must rinse your clear aligners each time you remove them as otherwise a nasty layer of bacteria build-up will coat your clear aligners and you would be putting your dental health at risk if you re-wear the same aligners without rinsing them.
- Avoid using hot or cold water to rinse your aligners
We all know that clear aligners are made from plastic trays. Plastic contracts and expands when exposed to extreme temperatures. Hence, to ensure that your teeth aligners don’t lose their shape and get damaged, you must always rinse and clean them using only lukewarm water.
- Don’t clean your aligners with toothpaste
Do you clean your clear aligners using toothpaste? If yes, then you must stop doing so immediately. This is because toothpaste can discolour them and cause scratches on them. Toothpaste can also cause your clear aligners to have a peculiar smell which will discourage you from wearing your clear aligners religiously.
- Never leave your aligners out in the open
As we have mentioned above, you must always rinse your clear aligners after every use. Another important thing to follow is to always store the clean aligners in their dry box. You must never leave your clear aligners in open space as this will make them prone to bacteria and germs.
- Brush and floss before each wear
Your mouth has bacteria that will get transferred to your clean aligners if you don’t clean your mouth before you re-wear your clear teeth aligners. Hence, it is important that you brush and floss your teeth thoroughly before you wear your clear aligners. This will prevent you from falling prey to dental cavities and other teeth problems.
Remember to be patient with yourself as your mouth will take time to adjust to your new set of clear aligners. For the best result, make sure that you wear your clear aligners for at least 22 hours a day. You must also remove your clear aligners every time you eat your meals or sip on coloured beverages. This will prevent your clear aligners from staining and will help you have a well-maintained and stain-free set of clear aligners.
