How to wear invisible braces?

Step 1: Know which invisible braces to wear

If you’re preparing to wear your clear aligners make sure you’re actually holding the right pair for the stage you’re at. You don’t want to be wearing the wrong aligner because that will throw your teeth alignment off completely!Thankfully, Zenyum invisible braces clearly indicate the stages so there’s less chance of getting confused.

Step 2: Start with your front teeth and work your way to the back

Gently push the aligner onto your front teeth. Use your fingertips to apply equal pressure to the back of your teeth to push the rest of the aligner into place.


You should feel them snap into place. Just like a jigsaw puzzle! It’s normal for a new set of aligners to feel tight so you may need to use a little more pressure at first to push them into place.

Step 3: Use your chewies!

If you’ve yet to receive your first set of Zenyum Invisible Braces, you might be thinking of Chewbacca right now. We don’t blame you.

“Chewies” are a soft, almost chewing gum like product that is used as a sort of buffer when putting on your aligners. They prevent any potential damage from the pressure of biting down on your bottom set of aligners. 

With that said, don’t use your teeth to bite your aligners into place!  Whenever you wear your invisible braces, bite down on your chewies for about a minute.

Chewies also help to remove any air gaps between your aligners and teeth and make your aligners sit on your teeth properly. It’s an important step -It makes sure they’re effective in moving your teeth.

How to remove invisible braces

Step 1: Start with the molars

Use your fingertips on the inside of your molars to pull the aligner out. Again if you’re wearing a new set, this might take more pressure but be careful not to exert too much force or your aligners might crack.

If you get frustrated, take a deep breath and try again. You’ll be taking them off swiftly in no time. Plus, it’ll soon get easier as your teeth get straighter!

Step 2: Work your way to the front

Once you’ve loosened your aligners from the molars, use your fingertips to work their way towards the front of your teeth to completely remove the invisible braces.

Step 3: Clean and store your invisible braces

Ready to take off your Zenyum Invisible Braces for a delicious meal, or that absolutely necessary third cup of coffee?

Once you have them off, don’t just chuck them aside! You may risk losing your invisible braces if you’re wrapping them in tissue and setting them on the table. Always store them safely in your braces case. And don’t forget to clean your clear braces!

Ideally you should brush your teeth and rinse your mouth before putting your invisible braces back on.

If you accidentally crack or break your aligners while putting them on or removing them, don’t panic! Just contact Zenyum’s support team on the Zenyum app immediately and seek advice.

You’ll be a pro in no time with enough practice putting on and removing your Zenyum Invisible Braces – but you’ll need to get them first before you can practice!
