Use & Care Guide

How to use your New Smile Clear Aligners.

  • To wear, snap aligner over teeth. If needed, use the provided “Chewie” to help completely seat the aligner.
  • It is normal for a new aligner to fit tightly and apply gentle pressure to your teeth, this pressure should lessen within a few days of wearing the new aligner.
  • Aligners should be removed when eating or drinking anything other than cool water. If needed, use the provided “Retainer Retriever” tool to help remove aligner. Brush and floss your teeth prior to re-inserting aligner.
  • Always rinse aligners in cold water before wearing.
  • When not wearing, store aligners in provided case.
  • You may experience a dry mouth, so drink plenty of water. At first, you may speak with a slight lisp. This goes away within a few days.
  • Clean aligners with a soft toothbrush, a small amount of antibacterial soap and cool water.
  • For optimal results, the aligners should be worn 20-22 hours per day.

Important considerations for New Smile Clear Aligners.

  • Do not expose your aligners to hot water or run them through the dishwasher.
  • Drinking hot or colored liquids while wearing your aligners can cause distortion and discolorization.

  • Using denture cleaner or mouthwash can harm or discolor the aligners.
  • Call your dentist if the aligners do not fit correctly, break or if you lose one.
  • Even though the aligners are hypoallergenic, call your dentist if you experience any adverse reactions.
