It’s best that you brush your teeth at least 2-3 times a day, preferably after each meal. We recommend that you not use whitening products since you won’t be able to whiten the entire surface of the teeth while wearing braces/Invisalign attachments.
When brushing, you should:
Floss at least once daily. You can use a threader to help you pull the floss beneath the underwire. Once it is through, carefully move the floss up and down between your teeth all the way to the gums. Be sure you use a different section of the floss for each tooth.
Use either an antiseptic dental rinse or warm water to rinse your teeth after flossing. You should also brush your removable appliance whenever you brush your teeth to remove plaque and particles of food from it. Add a partial or retainer-cleaning tablet to a cup of room temperature tap water and soak your appliance for about 15-20 minutes every 2-3 days, rinse with water and return to wear or retainer case. Do not soak overnight. Do not place in dishwasher or use hot water, this may distort the appliance
