Very few things in life are as satisfying as a beautiful smile. If your teeth are crowded or you have alignment issues, then you can perfect your dentition with braces. Braces are usually worn for two years on average, but this depends on individual preferences and how well you adhere to your orthodontist’s instructions.

Removable clear aligner brands are also a perfect substitute for braces, no thanks to the unsightly appearance of conventional braces. 

Clear aligners are near invisible, at least to the untrained eyes. This explains why Beam Clear Aligners are called invisible aligners.

To keep your aligners working well for a long time, and to minimize the risk of oral health complications, you must take proper care of them.

In this article, we will discuss five tips to care for your clear aligner braces.

Rinse your aligners anytime they’re removed

There are times when you have to remove your clear aligners. An example is when you are eating. After removing your clear aligners, rinse them at once. Do not procrastinate the rinsing because it may skip your mind.

Why is it important to rinse your clear aligners?

Well, there’s an entire colony of bacteria in your mouth. So, when you wear your aligners, there’s always that risk of transferring the bacteria onto your clear aligners. The best way to remove these bacteria is by cleaning your clear aligners anytime you remove them.

Clean your clear aligners with warm water

Plastics can expand and contract anytime they are exposed to extreme temperatures. When cleaning your clear aligners, ensure that you do not do so with cold or extremely hot water. You should use lukewarm water. You can also contact our specialists for the right cleaning solution.

Floss and brush your teeth before wearing clear aligners

Like we’ve said already, there are bacteria in your mouth. The bacteria begin to build up after you’ve brushed and flossed. That’s why your breath smells fresh soon after brushing.

So, brushing and flossing should be done before wearing your clear aligners. Doing so will minimize your risk of dental complications due to poor oral hygiene. It will also allow your mouth to remain clean for a longer time.

Do not use toothpaste on your clear aligner braces

Toothpaste has an abrasive nature, especially plastics. This means that it may damage your clear aligners.

The surface of a clear aligner is smooth. Toothpaste scratches this surface and gives you an uncomfortable feeling when you wear it. Using toothpaste on clear aligners can also cause small scratches on the interior of the aligners, which in turn harbors the bacteria. You see, while toothpaste may seem like an easier and quicker way to clean your aligners, there are better options.

Orthodontic specialists at Beam can recommend a safer mouthwash that will clean your aligners quickly and more efficiently.

Colored drinks are great stainers

Yes! The ingredients used in making colored drinks contain dye. As such, they can stain your aligners. The best you can do is to avoid them. Colored water, juices, and other colored drinks should only be taken after you’ve removed your clear aligner braces.
