Aligners4U – “We Brighten up Your Smile”

Aligners are a series of removable transparent plastic trays, custom made for the patient. These are discrete, light in weight and give aesthetic appearance when worn over the teeth. Clear Aligners are extremely popular options under orthodontic treatment. They help correct mild to moderate cases of misaligned or deformed teeth, malocclusions, bite issues etc.

In order to keep them in good condition following steps have to be followed for their maintenance.

  • Remove Aligners while having meals or snacks and while consuming hot / cold drinks
  • Wash and clean the aligners at least twice daily, with a mild soap / solution, is a must. Only clean water at room temperature should be used for cleaning with a soft bristled brush.
  • Avoid using tooth paste totally, as they may be abrasive and may damage the surface of the aligners. This may cause tiny pores, where bacteria will form resulting in tooth decay & bad breath
  • Soak the aligners in a denture cleaner or a mild cleaning solution. This will keep away odours and bacterial formation. Wear aligners only after washing and rinsing them in clean water, at normal temperature.
  • Keep the aligners safely in their case, when not in use. Don’t expose the aligners to hot atmosphere and air otherwise they may get distorted and warped.
  • Maintain proper oral health for best results. Brush and floss the teeth at least twice a day to remove any food particles stuck between the teeth. This will avoid bad breath, cavities or tooth decay. Wear the aligners only after washing them in clear water and after rinsing the mouth after each meal.

Follow the above steps properly to get maximum desired benefits from the aligner treatment
