Why You Need To Clean Invisalign Trays
How To Clean Invisalign Retainers
Use a soft-bristled toothbrush and add a dab of clear liquid soap to gently scrub off stuck-on food particles and dried saliva. Rinse them well with cold water and brush and floss your teeth before putting them back in your mouth. If you don’t want to use soap, use non-abrasive toothpaste that won’t leave scratches on your clear aligners.
Note: Using a clear soap will prevent the set of aligners from yellowing. It’s also always best to use cold water or lukewarm water when cleaning your aligners as they can bend or crack from hot water.
You can follow the same steps as method 2 only with denture cleaner if you don’t have any Invisalign crystals. This is a great retainer cleaner and can be purchased at any local drugstore. Denture cleaners are typically made from sodium bicarbonate (or baking soda), citric acid, and potassium monopersulfate (a bleaching agent), therefore, you should rinse them off well.
