When it comes to using your clear aligners, you’ll want to take extra special care of your teeth and gums. This is easier to do when you have all the dental hygiene essentials. If you know someone who is wearing aligners, the following items make great gifts for the holidays!
Dental Hygiene Essentials and Gifts During Invisalign Therapy
-Water Flosser: This pressurized, pulsating water delivery device keeps dental plaque, oral bacteria and food particles from staying trapped between teeth where they can cause cavities.
-Toothbrush: Having a good toothbrush on hand and using it throughout the day will help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong. Keep a toothbrush with you at all times, whether that’s an adult toothbrush or a travel-sized version with a toothbrush case. Ideally, using an electric toothbrush will effectively remove dental plaque for healthier teeth.
-Aligner Case: Even though Invisalign aligners are delivered with their own cases, it’s not a bad idea to have extra cases on hand. Especially when you are out and about and planning on dining, be sure to have proper cases for your aligners so you don’t accidentally toss them out after eating.
-Oral Health Travel Kit: Whether you are planning to travel during your treatment or your loved one is traveling while undergoing Invisalign therapy, it’s important to have a dental kit with all the essentials:
- A travel case that can be tucked into a purse, pocket, briefcase or backpack
- Travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste
- Handy dental picks or floss
- Toothbrush cover
- Aligner case
