Your Invisalign® Starter Kit comes in a handy travel pouch. When you open it, you’ll see an elegant box; inside the box, you’ll see a sleek case to store your aligners, cleaning crystals to keep your aligners fresh, a welcome brochure, and a use and care instructions manual for your Invisalign® aligners.
When you start orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® clear aligners, you will soon be on your way to a straighter smile. But before you can start wearing them, you need to get your starter kit! This article will walk you through everything you’ll receive as part of your Invisalign® journey and how to use it.
Your Invisalign® clear aligners will come in a labeled box telling you the number of clear aligners in that box. In addition, each set of aligners is individually packaged and labeled.
As you unwrap your aligners, read the number on the package. This will help you make sure you’re moving from stage to stage in the correct order.
You will also receive a container to put your aligners in, instructions, and cleaning crystals as mentioned above. The container is vital to keep your aligners clean and safe when you’re not wearing them. Keeping your aligners in your storage case is highly recommended to prevent pets from chewing them or losing them.
The first thing you need to do is clean your aligners. Do this by soaking them in the cleaning crystals for 15 minutes. After they’ve soaked, rinse them off and put them back in the container.
It’s important to clean your aligners every day to prevent bacteria from building up.
To put in your aligners, simply place them over your teeth and lightly push until they snap into place. You should always wear them for 20-22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you wear your aligners, you will need to move from stage to stage in the correct order. This will ensure that your teeth are moving correctly. Simply read the number on the package and match it to your current set to do this. If you lose your aligners and you don’t have your next set of aligners to move to, you should wear your previous ones to prevent your teeth from shifting and call your orthodontist as soon as you can. Therefore, it’s important to keep all your aligners till your orthodontist tells you it’s ok to dispose of them.
If you have any questions about your Invisalign® starter kit, ask your orthodontist. They will be able to help you through every step of the process!
