Do’s & Don’ts of Invisalign

SmileBright Dental have been providing the greater Brisbane community with Invisalign for over 10 years.

Invisalign clear aligners are a lightweight, clear plastic casing that are made especially to fit over your teeth. They are replaced regularly with new aligners that bring your teeth that bit closer to your perfect smile. We have created a list of do’s and don’ts that we think are important for Invisalign patients to know to ensure that their Invisalign journey is enjoyable.


  1. Wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, removing them only when you eat or brush your teeth.
  2. Brush and floss your teeth before putting the aligners back in.
  3. Clean your aligners regularly using the recommended cleaning solution.
  4. Wear each set of aligners for the recommended amount of time before moving on to the next set.
  5. Keep your aligners in their case when not in use.
  6. Visit your dentist or orthodontist regularly for check-ups and progress updates.


  1. Do not eat or drink anything except for water while wearing your aligners.
  2. Do not use toothpaste or mouthwash to clean your aligners, as they may scratch the surface and make your aligner look cloudy.
  3. Do not expose your aligners to hot temperatures or direct sunlight, as they may warp.
  4. Do not bite or chew on your aligners, as this may damage them.
  5. Do not skip wearing your aligners or wear them less than the recommended amount of time.
