Helpful Tools for Invisalign Care at School

Read on to learn more about how your child can care for their Invisalign while on the go or at school!

Invisalign has changed how people straighten their teeth. For straightened teeth, your kid doesn’t have to count on metal braces anymore to get incredible results. However, Invisalign doesn’t require care and maintenance to keep them in excellent working shape. Read on to learn more about how your child can care for their Invisalign while on the go or at school!

Floss Picks

Floss picks are important for your child during their time with Invisalign. If food becomes trapped in between their teeth during their time wearing Invisalign, this could lead to bad bacteria flourishing and could lead to bad breath or issues with how Invisalign fits their teeth. For a child that goes to school each day, a regular set of string dental floss could be inconvenient, which is why floss picks could be your child’s best friend when they are wearing Invisalign aligners. Flossing is important before you put your trays in after you eat, so making sure that no food particles are left between your teeth is important for maintaining Invisalign and dental health.

Additional Retainer Cases

Since removing the Invisalign trays is required each time you brush your teeth or eat food, the case is bound to be misplaced at a certain point. Or, the plastic cases might break over time under regular wear and tear. For that reason, we recommend having a few spare cases to make sure that there is always somewhere safe to place the trays during meal time and brushing. Remember to hit the goal of wearing your Invisalign 22 hours a day!

Invisalign Mints

When you are wearing something in your mouth all day, every day, it is bound to pick up bacteria. The result could mean that your breath may not be smelling as fresh as normal. That is why it’s recommended to use Invisalign mints to help with fresh breath during normal use. Plus, Invisalign mints work like a chewie, but they help freshen your breath in the process. These mints are made for Invisalign users specifically, and since you can’t chew gum while wearing your Invisalign, the mints are the next best thing to make sure your breath stays fresh all day.
