Updated: Sep 8, 2023

🎉 Congratulations on Your Journey to a New Smile! 🎉

Hey there, smile transformer! We're thrilled to be a part of your aligner adventure, and our mission is to keep you comfortable and ensure your oral hygiene is top-notch throughout the journey. Let's dive into some fun and helpful hints and tips to keep you on the right track …

Aligner Chewies: Your Comfort Champions

Say hello to the Aligner Chewies, your trusty allies for staying comfy and keeping those aligners intact! When it's time to pop your aligners in, always use your fingers to place them in your mouth gently. Then, give your aligners a cosy fit by biting down on the Chewies—avoid using your teeth to bite them into place; that could lead to distortion or breakage. Two Aligner Chewies can last for one whole aligner duration. And the best part? They're easy to clean with soap and water, diluted mouthwash, or appliance cleaning tablets!

Aligner Retrievers: Your Aligner Removal Gadgets

To remove your aligners effortlessly, say hello to the Aligner Retrievers! No more awkward finger positioning or feeling like you're forcing those aligners off. These magic tools help you release the aligners from the lip-facing side of the tooth at the back—especially handy with new sets or when you've got attachments at the back. With a little practice, you'll be a pro at removing aligners in no time.

Stay Clean and Fresh, Smile Champion

Proper hygiene is essential on this smile journey! After each meal, brush those pearly whites and rinse your aligners in lukewarm water before re-inserting. Keep those aligners sparkling by brushing them with a soft-bristled brush. And here's a secret weapon for deep cleaning: retainer cleaning tablets for daily freshness and an ultrasonic cleaner for that weekly sparkle. But hold up, avoid hot water—it can warp the plastic. And remember, toothpaste is a no-go for your aligners; those tiny particles can be abrasive and scratch the surface.

Handle Breakages and Soreness Like a Pro

If you encounter a sore gum area or a breakage emergency, don't worry! Reach out to your practice for advice—they've got your back! Keep wearing your current aligner as much as possible or revert to the previous one until you receive a new aligner. No DIY fixes here, leave that to the pros!

With these fantastic tips and tools, you'll rock your aligner journey with ease, comfort, and a bright, beautiful smile! We're here to cheer you every step of the way. Go, smile champion, go! ! 🌟😁🌟
