At Orthodontics at Tamworth our Invisalign patients use a series of clear, removable plastic trays (aligners) that fit over their teeth. Each Aligner is custom-made and changed every 2 weeks to gradually move teeth into the desired position. Always remove your retainers before eating and drinking anything except for cool water.
The best way to clean your aligners is by gently brushing them with a soft toothbrush and water before inserting them into your mouth. We also recommend that you brush your teeth after each meal before putting your aligners back on. We give all our Invisalign patients two aligner containers so that they can keep them safe when the aligners are not being worn!
