How to take care of clear aligners


    • Store your Caspersmile aligners in the provided case while eating or brushing.
    • Always use the case to prevent loss, damage, or contamination. 
    • Keep your next set of aligners in their bag until needed.
    • Store used aligners in their pouch until the treatment concludes.

Daily maintenance

    • Clean them with a soft-bristled brush and mild soap.
    • Brush inside and out. Cleaning the outer surface is easier while wearing them.
    • Rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid using hot water as it can warp or damage your aligners.

Keep them transparent

    • NEVER soak them in mouthwash.
    • AVOID wearing them while consuming colored beverages.
    • Steer clear of denture cleaning solutions.



Remove aligners to eat or drink anything besides water.


Brush and floss after each meal or snack before reinserting aligners.


If brushing isn't possible, rinse your mouth well and clean the aligners under running water.


With Caspersmile, you don't need to see your orthodontist every month to modify your treatment.

Dos and Don'ts


    • Keep those aligners in their case when they're not busy making you look great.
    • A clean mouth is an aligner's best friend – brush and floss before wearing them.
    • Protect aligners from extreme temperatures and sunlight.
    • Clean aligners before to each use.
    • Use lukewarm or cool water for cleaning.
    • Opt for a soft-bristled brush for dental care.


    • Keep all sharp objects away from your aligners.
    • Never leave aligners unguarded; always use their case.
    • Don't clean them with hot water to prevent damage.
    • Refrain from using denture cleaners or mouthwash on aligners.
    • Eating or drinking with them in? That's a hard pass.
    • Don't bite down on aligners for positioning; this could harm them.



Maintain your smile

Preserve your new smile post-treatment with retainers. They're crucial for keeping your teeth in position. The first set is included with your aligners. Wear them for 22 hours daily for the initial 6 months, then nightly for the following 6 months.

Go to FAQs


Does the treatment hurt?

It is normal to feel discomfort when starting treatment. It's a sign that your teeth are moving and the aligners are working. Usually, the discomfort will go away after the first few days. If you think the pain is excessive, contact us immediately.

Does using Clear Aligners affect the way I speak?

As with any orthodontic treatment, you may have a lining at the beginning of your treatment. Once your tongue gets used to the aligners, it'll disappear.

What if an aligner doesn't match my teeth?

Caspersmile's treatment is done from a model of your teeth in their current position. Each step is different from the previous one to move them until the teeth are in the right place. The first few days are expected to not fully fit until the teeth settle. If you think an aligner needs alignment, write to us.

Are there food restrictions like with clear aligners?

No, The Caspersmile aligners can be removed to eat, so you don't need to change your diet during treatment.
