How should I care for my ClearCorrect aligners?
ClearCorrect aligners require specific care to protect them from damage and discoloration. Refrain from eating or drinking colored foods and beverages with your aligners in, as this can stain them. For cleaning, soak them in a denture cleanser. Never use gritty toothpaste to clean them, as this can lead to scratches. When you’re not wearing your aligners, ensure you’re placing them in a protective case to avoid losing or breaking them.
