How do I clean SureSmile aligners?

If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, choosing to correct these problems is a good one! Not only will you feel more confident about your smile, but it will be easier to brush and floss productively with an aligned bite and even teeth. Additionally, aligned teeth reduce dental wear and tear.

We offer SureSmile in Saint Paul, MN, to align your bite and straighten your teeth. SureSmile is a system of clear aligner trays worn over the teeth. You wear each one for a week or so before moving on to the next. After treatment, we provide a dental retainer to keep your teeth in line.

If you’re considering SureSmile or already scheduled for orthodontic treatment with us, you may wonder about aligner upkeep. Keeping your aligners clean during treatment is crucial. You want to avoid cavities and dental infections that threaten your oral health or make it difficult to wear your aligners according to schedule. Keeping your aligners clean mitigates risk.

We recommend cleaning your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and mild antibacterial soap. Never use hot or cold water, as these temperatures can damage your aligners. Your dentist can also recommend an appropriate aligner cleaner for you to use.
