Not being able to visit the dentist during this COVID-19 pandemic has been an adjustment to millions of Americans. Many people have had to cancel or (hopefully) reschedule their regular appointments. For those with any type of dental work or orthodontic treatment, not being able to visit the dentist can seem scary – but it doesn’t have to be! You can take great care of your smile at home, and for those with clear aligners, you can help to ensure that your smile is being straightened and becoming beautiful.

You can eat and drink anything you want because you must take your aligners out of your mouth for meals and snacks. Also, the ability to take the aligners entirely out of your mouth allows you can brush and floss properly throughout your orthodontic treatment to maintain optimum oral health. With conscientious care and cleaning, your aligners can stay clear of stains, odors, and plaque buildup.
Thankfully, caring for your aligners is simple. Follow these steps:
