I Dropped My Aligner on the Floor — Now What?
There’s no “five second rule” for dropped aligners. It’s best to clean it thoroughly before reinserting it into your mouth. Never use hot water to do the cleaning! High temperatures can deform your aligners. Invisalign recommends using their Cleaning Kit with sanitizing crystals that thoroughly clean your aligners in fifteen minutes or less. You can buy this kit through Dr. Alizadeh’s Carmichael dental office.
