Invisalign Update. #2 -How I clean them.


So it's been about a month since I got my first tray fitted and I've been steadily getting used to having them in and the extended cleaning routine. Each time I eat I take the aligners out and when I'm finished eating I clean them and my my own teeth!

1. Toothpaste
As far I'm aware any tootpaste will sufice. I used this one because I feel like the baking soda in it really does a good job of thoroughly cleaning the teeth whether you have braces or not!

I was always really bad for flossing, I just couldn't get into a routine of remembering to do it but because my teeth are quite crowded, they were peared down quite a bit in places to allow for movement so there's fairly large gaps between some of my teeth! With that being said, it's probably better not to have lots of food caught in between while they're trying to move..eww nuff' said..

3. Mouthwash
The main thing when picking a mouthwash is making sure it's alcohol free! Primarily because it's just not needed and because it makes my mouth super dry while leaving a strange after taste.

Extra tips:
I made the mistake of drinking herbal tea which stained my first tray pretty bad, despite allowing it to allowing it cool and drinking through a straw! So I would definitely steer clear of hot drinks regardless and coloured or fizzy drinks.

Each of these cost me €1.50 at Dealz(Poundland) which is such a steal!

Have you evere had braces? If so, what's your advice?

  4. Of all the recommendations, I have been using the mouthwash technique for years. I simply place the invisible braces in a tray like you would dentures, and let them soak in the mouthwash. The braces really come clean rather well. The other benefit is that even if I don't clean them thoroughly with water, I am used to that taste of mouthwash.
