How to Clean Byte Aligners

Byte aligners can give you the straightened smile of your dreams. As an at-home teeth straightening option, they can take half the time as a traditional method. Plus, thanks to their clear design, they're much more discreet than regular braces. These aligners let you smile with confidence as they adjust your teeth and are the perfect choice for all ages.

With that said, it's vital to keep your Byte aligners clean — cleaning your Byte aligners will help you keep up with your oral hygiene and preserve your teeth long-term. Not to mention, it'll help your smile look white and shiny through the whole process. Here's everything you should know about cleaning your Byte aligners.

What Are Byte Aligners?

Byte aligners offer a welcome alternative to traditional braces. They're clear, invisible and custom-made to fit your mouth. They shift your teeth over a few months, depending on how much alteration is necessary. You can even opt for a night-only Byte alignment treatment, so your daily life has no disruptions. 

The process is simple: 

  1. You take impressions of your teeth at home and send them to the orthodontic team.
  2. Orthodontists will create as many custom aligners as you need, which will shift your teeth little by little.
  3. You'll wear each set of aligners for about a week.
  4. Once you've completed the program, you'll find yourself with a straighter smile!

Byte aligners offer plenty of unique advantages. For one, they're less noticeable than traditional methods like braces, whether you opt for an all-day or night-only treatment. In addition, they're much less expensive than other options, offering affordable payment plans. If you're looking for a way to boost your confidence in your smile, Byte aligners are an ideal choice. 

Importance of Cleaning Your Byte Aligners

Cleaning your Byte aligners often is an essential part of the process for both cosmetic and health reasons. Ignoring plaque buildup on your Byte aligners can degrade their quality, make them look discolored and lead to an unpleasant odor. Furthermore, it could contribute to poor oral hygiene, which is linked to your cardiovascular health. The main benefit of Byte aligners is they preserve your smile throughout the process — but that could change if you neglect cleaning them.

Byte Aligners Cleaning Steps With WhiteFoam

If you're unsure how to remove plaque from Byte aligners, it's an easy process. All you have to do is follow these three simple steps, and you'll have squeaky clean Byte aligners:

1. Rinse Them After Wearing 

Right after you remove your Byte aligners, rinse them off. The water will wash away tiny food particles, reducing the chance of microbial growth. Always use cool to lukewarm water — since the Byte Aligners are made of plastic, hot water can warp their shape. A warped or altered Byte Aligner might cause incorrect shifting, which could lead to discomfort and slow your progress.

2. Clean Them With Dish Soap and Water 

After rinsing your Byte aligners, use regular dish soap and water. In particular, dish soap is ideal for cleaning a plastic aligner because it's gentle yet effective. It'll help remove any particles without causing damage. Keep the water cool or lukewarm as you rinse off the dish soap to avoid damaging your aligners.

3. Use EverSmile WhiteFoam Aligner Cleaner 

The final step is to use a pump of WhiteFoam by EverSmile. WhiteFoam uses a formula with hydrogen peroxide to clean your Byte aligners as you wear them. It allows you to clean your Byte aligners whether you're at home or out in public. Since you're meant to wear your all-day Byte aligners whenever you're not eating, on-the-go cleaning is a major advantage.

WhiteFoam aligner cleaner is easy and quick to use. All you have to do is pump the foam onto your aligner tray and pop it back in your mouth! As it works, it'll: 

  • Kill 99.999% of the bacteria on your Byte aligners
  • Remove plaque from your Byte aligners
  • Gently whiten your teeth
  • Give your mouth a fresh, minty smell
  • Fight discoloration

Cleaning Methods to Avoid

Following these simple steps will keep your Byte aligners looking like new. You might be tempted to try other cleaning methods, but they can do more harm than good. For instance, you should avoid:

  • Brushing your aligners: Since you keep your teeth clean by brushing with toothpaste, you might think it'll work on your aligner, too. However, toothbrush bristles can scratch your aligner, creating hiding spots for bacteria. Save your toothpaste for your teeth.
  • Soaking them in mouthwash: Soaking your aligners in mouthwash can cause discoloration over time. It's also less convenient than using WhiteFoam since you can't wear aligners as they're soaking. Leaving your aligners out of your mouth too much might slow the teeth straightening process.

Extra Tips for Clean Byte Aligners

It's also important to take proper care of your Byte aligners. Here are a few more helpful Byte aligners cleaning tips to keep your smile bright and healthy:

  • Store them right: Be sure to store your aligners in a cool, dry place when you're not wearing them. Bacteria loves growing in moist, warm areas.
  • Brush and floss: Practicing good oral hygiene will help you keep your aligners clean while promoting long-term dental health. Always brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss at least once a day. 
  • Take them out: Remember to take out your aligners before you eat or drink anything but water. If you forget to take them out, be sure to follow the steps for cleaning your aligners as soon as you remember.
