4. Keep Your Aligners Clean
Another benefit of your Spark Clear Aligner treatment is that it improves your overall oral health by preserving gum health.* In order for your aligners to provide that extra protection for your gums, they will require daily cleaning. The best time to clean your aligners is right before bed, ensuring you have fresh trays to put back on your teeth. To clean your aligners, simply rinse them using soap and water. For an even better clean, you can use a solution of 50 percent hydrogen peroxide and 50 percent water or vinegar.
5. Update Your Aligner Trays Regularly
Generally, your clear aligner treatment will call for updating your trays every one to two weeks. Your doctor will give you multiple sets at one time and be ready to answer any questions about your treatment progress. Most doctors see patients every eight to ten weeks where they will provide them with new sets of aligners.
Keep in mind that you may experience some mild discomfort whenever you change to a new set of aligners. It’s perfectly normal to have some slight discomfort and is actually a sign that your aligners are working! Over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help ease this initial discomfort as your teeth adjust.
