 Wearing Invisalign Clear Aligners 

  • Whether it’s a movie or your favorite glass of wine, Invisalign clear aligners are easily removable and virtually invisible so they won’t stop you from living your life to the fullest. You need to remove your aligners before eating and drinking but ensure you clean your teeth well before getting them back into your mouth.  
  • To get desired results, it is recommended that you wear your aligners for 20-22 hours every day. 
  • Invisalign Teen aligners come with compliance indicators with small blue dots to help parents monitor whether their teens wear their aligners as prescribed.

Replacement of Invisalign Clear Aligners

  • Depending on your dentist’s prescription, you may have to get new aligners weekly or fortnightly.  
  • Additionally, you may have scheduled dental check-ups once in 6-8 weeks. During these visits, your dentist will examine treatment progress and you will be issued with the next set of aligners. Essentially, you will make relatively fewer visits to the dentist meaning that you will have enough time to live a normal life.   
  • You may experience some discomfort or tenderness when you wear a new batch of aligners. However, this is normal and the discomfort will go away in a few days. 

Keeping Your Aligners Clean

  • Wash your aligners when you take them off at night. You may gently brush them using a soft toothbrush to make them odor-free and clean. 
  • For hygienic, fresh and spotless aligners, always use the special Invisalign cleaning system.
