Do Invisalign Trays Smell Bad?

Many patients are concerned with the Invisalign trays’ hygienity. The Invisalign tray itself does not have a smell. Being in your mouth all day and night is what will cause it to smell bad. Plaque can build up on the trays (the same way it builds up on teeth), and eating/drinking with the trays on, improper teeth brushing and tray cleaning all contribute to tray odor.

You won’t notice the smell until you remove your tray from your mouth. Proper oral hygiene and regular cleaning of your device will help minimize any odor you may notice upon removal.

Here are some tips to minimize tray odor, and ensure the best overall health for your teeth as you undergo your teeth straightening treatment:

Remember: Even if you don’t think your Invisalign tray smells bad you still have to clean it regularly in order to keep aligners clean and clear and teeth strong and healthy.
