Congratulations on choosing Invisalign in Marietta, GA! One of the biggest benefits of wearing removable, invisible orthodontic trays is how easy they are to care for and keep clean. You won’t even have to change your normal brushing or flossing routine!

Daily Cleaning Routine

Maintaining a daily cleaning routine for with Invisalign is essential. After removing the trays, rinse them with lukewarm water to remove food and bacteria. Avoid using hot water, as it can warp the trays. Gently brush the trays using a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste or antimicrobial soap. Be thorough but gentle to avoid damaging the trays. Rinse them once again and make sure they are completely dry before placing them back in your mouth.

Avoid Harsh Products

While it may be tempting, avoid using toothpaste with colored gels or abrasive agents to clean your Invisalign trays. These can scratch the trays, making them more prone to bacterial buildup and discoloration. Instead, opt for a mild, clear toothpaste or a recommended Invisalign cleaning solution. Harsh chemical cleaners, bleach, or alcohol-based solutions should also be avoided, as they can damage the trays.

Soak for Deep Cleaning

To ensure a thorough clean, consider soaking your Invisalign trays regularly. You can use a commercial denture cleaner or an Invisalign cleaning solution recommended by our Marietta orthodontist. Follow the instructions provided, as different products may require varying soaking times. Remember to rinse the trays thoroughly before placing them back in your mouth.

  • We are beyond thankful for Dr. Kincer and his team!! Dr. Kincer is one of the most honest and conservative Orthodontist, which is a VERY rare find in the industry. We moved to south Florida about halfway through our treatment of 18 months and did not switch orthodontists; that’s how much Dr. Kincer means to us! Our daughter’s smile is absolutely beautiful!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the BEST at what he does!!! Both of my girls have been under Dr. Kincer's care, with exceptional results. They both began treatment at age 8, because of their tiny mouths that required Phase I and Phase II treatments. As a result of his recommended treatment plan, our girls will have exceptional teeth for life. Our family is incredibly thankful for Dr. Kincer's meticulous care that resulted in BEAUTIFUL smiles!!!

  • Dr. Kincer is the best. I am almost a year into my treatment and i have nothing but great things to say. He is so kind and his team is amazing. They are simply amazing and truly care for what their customers need and what their teeth need. I highly recommend Doctor Kincer to anyone looking for orthodontics.

  • Excellent orthodontist. Invisalign was the best money I ever spent on myself. Dr. Kincer is meticulous, thorough, has attention to detail, and fixed my flared teeth. Everyone is always complimenting my smile. He is always timely, professional, and his support staff (Jennifer and Lynn) are really caring. He is able to shave down teeth to make them aesthetically fit my smile and proportions. Dr. Kincer and Lynn really make sure their patients are comfortable-- especially when it comes down to removing attachments for invisalign and IPR, when your teeth are already sensitive. I recommended him to my brother and little cousin for orthodontic work and for their retainers :)

  • Our family has been using Dr. Kincer for the past 10 years. Our oldest daughter has had amazing transformations with her treatment and our second is shaping up to do the same. Couldn't ask for a better, more friendly place.
