How should I care for my Invisalign braces?

Clean your Invisalign braces, also called aligners, by brushing and rinsing them with lukewarm water. Also be sure to brush and floss your teeth after eating and before you reinsert the aligners to ensure that anything you eat does not stain them. You can also purchase cleansing and sterilizing products from the makers of Invisalign. The company cautions against using hot water on the aligners as it may damage them.
