Clean Invisalign aligners using common household items. Easy and effective.

There are many companies that offer cleaning solution for Invisalign aligners. The problem is they are expensive and perhaps just as effective as cleansers you can find in your house. So why not save a few bucks by following the simple instructions below, and clean invisalign aligners yourself?

 What you will need:

-Cup

Hydrogen Peroxide

-Tooth Brush

Sonicare Tooth Brush (Optional)

Step 1:

Rinse your Invisalign aligners with warm water over the sink. This removes saliva and debris in your aligners, making things easier for the next step.Clean_Invisalign_Rinse

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2:

Pour 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in a cup, and soak your aligners in the solution for 30 minutes. Hydrogen Peroxide is known for its antiseptic and bleaching property. Not only it kills the germs on your aligners, it also turns it clean and shiny. Moreover, it has very low toxicity and very easy to rinse off, so it is the best thing to use on something that you put in your Clean_Invisalign_Peroxidemouth.

 

 

 

 

 

*Note: Do not soak your aligners in mouth wash or bleach. Mouth wash will dye your aligners green and blue, and bleach is toxic to consume. Some people suggest to soak aligners in vinegar, but it leaves a terrible taste afterwards. You can clean invisalign aligners using denture tablets, but some brands can turn your aligners cloudy overtime, so use it sparingly.

 

 

Step 3:

Rinse the aligners over the sink again, and brush it thoroughly with a tooth brush. The most idealy, use a Sonicare toothbrush. The ultrasonic vibration really breaks up plaque build up, and its a lot easier on your hand. It is a very good investment for Invisalign patients as it is a great tooth brush and also great aligner cleaning tool. Most dental offices sell them at a discounted price.Clean_Invisalign_Brush
