A clean, clear and comfortable journey towards healthier and straighter teeth.
You already know the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene every day. This is why one of our previous blogs talked about the significance of maintaining oral hygiene around the on-going festive seasons. But, when you are undergoing an orthodontic treatment, it becomes all the more vital for you to carry on with it and look after your mouth well on a daily basis. With TeethLogic’s invisible braces you have the biggest advantage of wearing an oral apparatus that can be easily removed to be cleaned. Ask someone who’s ever worn metal braces the trouble they had to go through just to keep their teeth and braces clean. You are using a revolutionary teeth-straightening treatment, which is why oral hygiene is so hassle-free.
But, with great power, comes great responsibility. Therefore, they need utmost care and attention to ensure optimal results.
Below are the best ways to care for them:
Take care of your teeth:
Just because you can eat what you want, when you want without having to worry about food getting stuck in your braces, doesn’t mean you don’t have to make an effort to clean previous day’s meals. Make sure you brush and floss at least twice in a day to avoid problems like plague, cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. TeethLogic’s invisible braces have to be worn for at least 22 hours a day, so removing them for a couple of minutes to clean your teeth won’t compromise your treatment. If you are always on the go during meals and don’t have the space to carry dental hygiene items with you, then simply rinse your mouth and aligners after eating.
Cleaning and Maintenance of your aligners:
Your clear aligners hold the same value in dental hygiene, as your teeth. Many a time dried saliva gets built on the aligner, which can cause the formation of bacteria. Therefore, keeping them clean every day is as important as brushing your teeth daily. Use a soft bristle toothbrush and gently brush them both inside and outside. Use a liquid soap for cleaning it, as toothpaste contains abrasives which can cause scratches. Do not use hot water or ice cold water to clean them, it can distort your aligner and create problems with the fitting. Always rinse your aligners with cold or lukewarm water before wearing them again after eating.
The right mouthwash:
There are plenty of mouthwashes available in the market that suits your pocket. But avoid rinsing using the coloured ones! Those having green and blue colour in them can discolour your aligners, and before you even know it, your invisible aligners will no longer be invisible.
Avoid hot beverages:
As much as you enjoy sipping piping hot coffee or tea, it has to be stopped while you are wearing your aligners. Hot drinks cause damage to the aligners over time. And constant consumption of coffee causes staining on the aligners, which will look extremely shabby each time you open your mouth. Therefore, try and limit the consumption of such beverages during your treatment.
Another stain that looks a tad bit hideous and harms the effect of your aligners on your teeth is that of lipsticks. Elements present in a lipstick, stick to the aligners and can limit the effect the aligners have on your teeth. Avoid it or instead, go for natural balms that don’t spoil your aligners.
If you have any questions about your treatment or need more oral hygiene tips, you may at anytime call/chat with your assigned dentist.
