  • Appearance – Invisalign® invisible aligners are clear, so they are virtually undetectable by others while you wear them.
  • Removable – Whether you've got a special occasion or need to take them out for a photograph, our invisible aligners are removable, so they never stand between you and your experiences.

How Do Clear Dental Aligners Work?

Clear dental aligners utilize thin, transparent plastic shells called attachments to shift teeth in small increments. The placement and shape of the attachments depend on the movement required. When worn consistently, clear aligners can make small movements over time by gently applying pressing on the teeth. This pressure is transferred through the roots of the teeth to the jaws. The jawbone responds, moving the sockets, and teeth shift. One of the main ways patients can ensure their clear aligners work for them is by consistently wearing them. They need to be worn 22 hours per day to be effective. Patients can remove their aligners to eat, brush their teeth, and floss.

How To Take Care of Your Clear Aligners

Maintaining your clear aligners' optimal condition for as long as possible is important. Some of the best ways to care for your clear aligners include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Always Rinse Them When You Remove Them – The mouth is full of bacteria, and each time you wear your aligners, these bacteria can transfer to them. When you clean your aligners by rinsing them, you reduce the chance of bacteria building up on them.
  • Only Clean Them With Lukewarm Water – Using hot or freezing-cold water on your clear aligners can cause them to expand and contract. Plastics can expand when exposed to extreme temperatures, so cleaning your aligners with lukewarm water is essential.
  • Brush & Floss Before Wearing Them – Brushing and flossing can help the mouth’s natural bacteria from building up on the aligners. You can help yourself avoid dental complications due to poor oral hygiene when you brush and floss before each wear.
  • Avoid Colored Drinks – Colored drinks can stain your aligners due to the dyes within their many ingredients, so it’s best to avoid them while wearing your clear aligners. We suggest removing your aligners before consuming a colored drink of any kind.
  • Avoid Using Toothpaste – Because toothpaste is abrasive, it can damage your clear aligners by scratching their smooth surface. This can result in your aligners being uncomfortable in your mouth. It can also create scratches on your aligners, perfect for growing bacteria.
