Hi, my name is Nikki and I’m a registered dental hygienist here at HPS Advanced Dental Care, located in Shelby Township, Michigan. Today I’d like to talk to you about Invisalign and proper oral hygiene for those who are in Invisalign retainers.

In our dental practice in Shelby Township, Michigan we are an Invisalign providers and we have a lot of dental patients who are using this as their form of orthodontics.   Invisalign is a great way to straighten your teeth. However there are certain ways that we would like you to take care of these trays, and take care of your teeth at the same time while you’re wearing your Invisalign retainer.

It’s very important to not wear the Invisalign retainers while you’re eating.  However, you do want to brush after you’re done eating before you put the Invisalign retainers back in. That is because any food that has accumulated in between your teeth or on your teeth, once you put those retainers back on, that food and bacteria is going to be trapped under there and you’re going to be more susceptible to gingivitis and to cavities as well and that’s definitely something that we want to avoid.

It’s definitely important to brush your Invisalign retainers every evening. You can soak them in warm water. Use a soft toothbrush as well to brush in those grooves, so that way, you’re getting out any plaque that has accumulated on those.  Brush the outside as well as on the inside in the grooves of your Invisalign retainers.

When you come in every six months or however often you come in for your cleaning, you want to bring your Invisalign retainers, and we’d be happy to clean those for you as a courtesy as our patient.
