You are just starting to follow aligners dental treatment. You are not used to wearing it yet ? You don't know how to maintain them daily ? Here are some good tips to follow for a peaceful treatment.
Insert your aligners
Repeat the process for the lower aligner. Do not bite the aligner to put it in place because this will damage it.
If there is a space between the teeth and the aligner, use the little "chewie”. This small soft spongy material is used to facilitate the installation of your aligners. Just put it between your teeth and chew.
Remove your aligners
The aligner can be removed using your thumb and your index. Sometimes it’s difficult to remove because the aligner is too tight.
Wear your aligners
You have to wear your aligners for a minimum 22 hours a day.
Mild pain is normal
It is possible to have a lisp the first days of wearing a new aligner. After a few days you will have a normal speech.
Wear your aligners when you sleep. Make sure they are well inserted in your teeth.
Remove your aligners when you eat. You can eat what you want without restrictions. Rinse your aligners by cold water and get rid of the excess water. Just brush your teeth always before putting your aligners back.
However, avoid hot drinks and other drinks like soft drinks which can damage and stain your aligners.
Avoid smoking with your aligners. Smoke can stain them and give you a permanent bitter taste.
Never chew gum with your aligners.
Clean your aligners before putting them in mouth. Use, a toothbrush with water.
Do not use a toothpaste or mouthwash products to clean your aligners. These products can damage the surface of aligners, and alter their colour.
A storage box is provided with your aligners. We recommend you to keep your aligners in the box when you are not wearing them for protecting and not losing them.
