How to Care for Clear Braces

woman with beautiful teethClear braces are a great way to get beautiful, straight teeth without uncomfortable metal brackets. They’re removable, and almost impossible to detect, making them ideal for adults who wish to improve their smiles. Here is a quick guide to cleaning your Invisalign retainers.

Rinse – The first thing you should do after removing your clear braces is to rinse them in lukewarm water. Water that is too hot or cold can distort the shape of the braces and prevent them from doing their job.

Toothpaste – Once you have rinsed your clear braces, brush both the inside and outside of the braces with toothpaste and a soft bristled brush to clean off any buildup. Rinse with warm water again.

Soak – If you notice any buildup still on your clear braces after you brush them, soak them in a denture-cleaning solution according to the instructions on the box. You can also use retainer-cleaning solution.
