Invisalign® Use and Care Instructions


Care Instructions

  • Wear your aligners 20-22 hours per day.
  • When placing aligners, use two hands and apply equal pressure.
  • DO NOT bite aligners into place.
  • To remove, use your fingertips on one side near the molars to pull down. Repeat on the other side. Using two hands, gently remove.
  • Always keep aligners in the case. Otherwise, aligners are often lost, broken or even eaten by pets.
  • Remove your aligners for eating and drinking anything but water.
  • After eating, rinse your mouth with water or brush and floss (if you can) before putting your aligners back in.
  • Clean your aligners with your toothbrush and a small amount of toothpaste and rinse with water.
