Recommendations for Invisalign Use
Aligners should be worn 20/22 hours per day, except when eating, brushing or flossing teeth. There are no dietary restrictions, and no hassles, because Invisalign is removed during meals and for hygiene.
The best way to clean the aligners is by brushing and rinsing them in lukewarm water. It’s important that you brush your teeth after each meal and prior to re-inserting your aligners to maintain proper hygiene.
