Get those teeth moving!
  • Aligners are numbered in sequence (# 1, 2, 3, etc)
  • Aligners are marked with either an “L” for lower/bottom teeth or a “U” for upper/top teeth
  • Do not bite your aligners into position…this may damage them! Use your clean fingers to push down into place
How many days for each set?
  • Wear each set for 20-22 hours per day…the more you wear them, the better they’ll move!
  • Take them out when eating and brushing
  • Wear each set for 7 days, then change to the next set
How do I keep the aligners & my teeth clean?
  • Brush like always! After eating or drinking, brush your teeth AND aligners with a toothbrush & toothpaste
  • If NO toothbrush available, swish your mouth with water to get all the food & sugar off your teeth BEFORE putting aligners back in!
  • For a fresher feel, it is ok to soak your aligners in Denture “Efferdent” tablets dissolved in water as needed
  • Please do NOT put aligner in boiling water or dishwasher they will distort and will no longer fit!
What about the next visit?
  • Your next appointment will be to check your progress…if you don’t already have this booked, please contact us!
