Aligner ‘Chewie’s’ are a vital part of your Invisalign treatment success and are equally important as wearing your aligners for 22 hours each day. They work by ‘massaging’ the aligner around your teeth so they fit comfortably and also help your teeth move to the point where they’re ready for the next set of aligners.
It’s important to understand that Aligner Chewie’s are designed and approved for Invisalign aligners and you should not substitute them for any other product. Using another product increases the risk of your Invisalign aligners breaking or cracking which will incur a fee of $95 to replace them.
Directions: With your Invisalign aligners in your mouth, place the chewie between your front teeth and between your canine teeth on each side. Bite down firmly for 10 seconds then rest for a coupe of seconds. Repeat this process two more times in each spot so there are no gaps between your Invisalign aligners and your teeth. You should use chewie’s at least twice a day (morning and night).
You may notice that there are regions of your mouth where your aligner looks thicker that you need to focus on with the chewie. In any areas where there are gaps between your aligners and your teeth, continue using chewie’s until there are no more gaps.
