How Do I Clean My Clear Aligners?

Straightening your teeth doesn’t mean you have to get traditional metal braces! We offer ClearCorrect™ clear aligner therapy at Leesburg Family Dental so patients have a more discreet option to get the smile of their dreams. Here’s some information about clear aligner therapy and how to keep your aligners clean.

What Is ClearCorrect?

Unlike traditional metal braces which use brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, ClearCorrect uses computer-generated, transparent aligners that are custom-made for your smile. They subtly shift your teeth into their desired positions. Clear aligners slip right over your teeth and are comfortable enough to wear all day. You only need to remove them when you eat and brush your teeth. Every two weeks, you will receive a new set of aligners. Each set gets you closer to the finish line of a straighter smile.

What Issues Can ClearCorrect Fix?

ClearCorrect is great for mild to moderate alignment issues, including spacing and gaps, crooked teeth, overcrowding, and bite issues. A typical clear aligner treatment lasts 12-18 months, making them faster than traditional metal braces. If you have a more advanced case, you might need to opt for traditional metal braces. We offer those also at Leesburg Family Dental. So whatever your situation, we’ll help you get the smile you desire.

How to Clean Clear Aligners

ClearCorrect clear aligners are easy to clean. Simply remove your aligners, rinse them with water, and soak them daily in dental crystals or denture cleaners while you eat or brush your teeth. If there are any food particles stuck in your clear aligners, you can use a soft toothbrush to dislodge them before placing them back on your teeth.
