Invisalign Cleaning Crystals are a cleaning system designed specifically for Invisalign clear aligners and retainers. Dissolve crystals in water and soak your aligners daily for 15-30 minutes, for a thorough clean that leaves your aligners sparklingly clear.
The cleaning crystals are designed to kill the bacteria that causes plaque to grow on your teeth and aligners. Daily cleaning will keep your aligners fresh and prevent discoloration or bacterial growth. They work well for retainers, too!
You can buy Invisalign cleaning crystals through your orthodontist’s office, or order online.
Use cleaning crystals daily to soak your aligners, for clean, healthy, fresh teeth, aligners, and smiles.
You can use the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals solution to soak your aligners as often as twice a day, but once a day is a great regular solution to keeping your aligners clean.
You should rinse and/or brush the aligners whenever you put them back in your mouth and be sure to store them properly when not in use. And brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night to keep food debris and other residues to stick on your teeth and gums.
While Invisalign Cleaning Crystals are a specially-designed cleaning program for clear aligners are retainers, they are not the only cleaning solution. Because their patented formula means a slightly high price tag, there are other alternatives that some patients may prefer.
Denture cleaners such as Polident are effective for cleaning Invisalign clear aligners and retainers. Soak top and bottom aligners for about 15-30 minutes and rinse thoroughly, brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any excess residue.
Mix equal parts warm water and 3% hydrogen peroxide in a glass and soak your aligners for 15-30 minutes. Rinse and brush aligners.
