Updated by Greg D
As part of your treatment, we include specific tools within your Invisible Aligners kit, with each serving a different and important purpose.
These tools include:
- A clear, plastic Smile Stretcher.
- Aligner Carrying Case.
- I.P.R. tools.
- An aligner removal tool.
- Aligner File.
So, what do each of these tools do?
- Smile Stretcher:
A see-through, plastic circle with 2 ends that stick out of the bottom.
This is designed to hold your lips back in conjunction with your selfie light (listed below). By doing this, the photos you take for our dentists allow them to clearly see all of your teeth, how they're progressing, and any adjustments that may need to be made to your treatment
- Aligner Carrying Case:
A small case designed to carry your Clear Aligners with you everywhere you go!
If you're about to eat or drink something, simply place your aligners in the box and store them safely in your bag or pocket. Just don't forget them!
- I.P.R. Tools:
Small, metal tools designed to painlessly remove plaque and calculum build-up in order to create space for movement. Simply rest the tool between the top of 2 teeth, now push the saw up and down and back and forth in a flossing motion.
The focus is on the top of the teeth where they meet, rather than the bottom of the teeth.
- Aligner Removal Tool:
A small, key-like object with a hook at the end.
Place your finger within the circle and while wearing your aligners, attach the hook to top (or bottom) of the aligner and gently but forcefully pull the aligner in order to remove it.
- Aligner File:
Like a nail file, but for your aligners!
If you find that your aligners are pinching any part of your mouth, find the area with your finger and then remove the aligner. At that point you can begin to file the problem area.
