Most aligners absorb compounds that become permanently embedded and can create offensive odours, especially after 2 weeks in the oral cavity.
Here are a few simple ways of minimising aligner odour;
1. Aligners can be immersed for 15 minutes in a solution of 2/3 water and 1/3 white vinegar or a denture cleaner tablet dissolved in water.
2. For a deeper clean and odour removal use the solutions above in an Ultra-Sonic Aligner Cleaner.
3. Aligner can be brushed using toothpaste and an Aligner Care brush
