Proper Cleaning of Invisalign Aligners in Ottawa West

You've taken the first step in talking with Allen Orthodontics in Ottawa West and selected Invisalign as your preferred straightening method. Now the team at Allen Orthodontics will teach you how to care for your Invisalign aligners.

At Allen Orthodontics which serves Ottawa West and surrounding areas, we recommend wearing your Invisalign approximately 22 hours a day. The aligners are typically removed when you eat so this is the perfect time to clean them.

One method is the Invisalign cleaning system that we sell here at Allen Orthodontics. This system is designed by Invisalign and helps remove plaque within 15 minutes and keeps your aligners odor-free, hygienic and clear.

Another method of keeping your Invisalign aligners clean is to purchase a denture cleaning product. While you eat, you can soak one aligner per one tablet of denture cleaning. At Allen Orthodontics, we suggest leaving the aligner in the cleaning product for approximately one hour. This can be done up to twice a day.

A third method of keeping your Invisalign trays clean is to use a baking soda product. It is suggested that you dissolve 1 tablespoon of baking soda in 1/2 Cup of water. Soak your trays in the baking soda water for about an hour. This method can be done twice a day.

Another cleaning method is to brush your Invisalign aligners with a toothbrush and toothpaste. This will help keep them clean of particles as well as smelling fresh.

At Allen Orthodontics, we want to help you keep your Invisalign aligners clean while straightening your teeth. If you have any questions regarding your Invisalign care, the staff in Ottawa West is here to assist you. Always remember to rinse before putting your aligners back on and keep on smiling!
