Re: stains on teeth with invisalign

No I don't use mouth wash, just toothpaste. Strange.
Does it come off when you get your teeth cleaned?

I started in April and also using accelerant and changing my aligners every 7 days. Accelerant is supposed to lessen time in treatment. My ortho told me that I can now change after 5 days, as long as the aligners are worn for 22 + hours/day, which is the case with me. Ask your ortho about accelerant...

Re: Finally Fixing My Crossbite - Pt. 1: Consultation
