Changing Invisalign Aligners Instructions

Changing Invisalign Aligners

  • If a tray develops an opaque film that is difficult to remove with regular brushing, place it in white vinegar for 15 minutes then brush and rinse with cold water.
  • Change your Invisalign aligner every 2 weeks.
  • Put the used Invisalign aligner back on its bag, do not lose them as they may be required in the future.
  • Clench into the Invisalign aligners frequently (in particular during the first 2 days) to make sure there are no air gaps between the aligners and your teeth.
  • Invisalign aligners worn less than 21 hours a day, will need to be wear for 3 weeks instead, before replacing for the new sets.
  • Invisalign aligners should feel loose and comfortable before moving to the next set of aligners.
  • If, at the end of the two week period, you have not worn the aligner full time, or if a space remains between a tooth and the aligner, do not switch to the next aligner – continue the same aligner for another week. If the aligner still does not fit well, please call the office for an appointment, and continue wearing the same aligner.
  • If an Invisalign cracks, just keep wearing it until they are due for change; unless they fully break, then move to the next set earlier, but wear them for 3 weeks.
  • if you lose an aligner after 5 days, just move to the next set, but wear it for longer than recommended, or call us.
