Customer Q & A
Looking for a tool to help with removal of Invisalign braces? If you have a clear Essix retainer, or Invisalign braces, this handy tool will make your life easier.
ART® The Appliance Remover Tool was developed by the company that makes Essix retainers and also works perfectly with Invisalign aligner trays. Its ergonomic shape and two specially designed hooks help remove your clear retainer or aligner with ease. Ideal for people with large fingers, this device removes your appliance from the cheek side and/or the tongue side.
You can also use the ART device to help place and remove orthodontic elastics on traditional braces.
Store it in your retainer case or dental kit. Latex-free, individually wrapped. Buy 2 and save! Please note: this item is not returnable.
Invisalign® and Vivera are registered trademarks of Align Technology, Inc.
Each ART (Aligner/Retainer Remover Tool) comes individually packaged in cellophane.
If you have clear plastic aligner trays, or a clear plastic retainer, this tool can be a lifesaver. Sometimes it's very difficult to remove your aligners or retainers, especially if you have large hands. Just hook this tool onto the edges of your retainer and pull down. This tool makes it fast and easy.
I use aligners and this tool is so much better than the tool that the aligner manufacturer sends

Retainer removal tool
1 tool that didn't work for me. The hooks on each end are to thick and hurt when I tried to put them in between my gum and my retainer. It also kept slipping off and that hurt too. Glad I bought 2 different tool removers to try out.

The tool was not flexible enough to place in mouth and remove my retainers by pulling both sides. I could only try to remove retainers by puling one side...I was concerned I would break them by removing them in that manner. It was also painful to use because of the pressure it puts on the gums.
Merchant Response:Products work differently for different people. Many of our customers have success with the ART Tool. We're sorry that this product didn't work out for you. You might want to consider trying the Outie Tool instead.

I bought for my Invisaligns but they are not easy to use at all. There are no instructions , common sense is what you have to work with and they really don't work.
ProsThe only pro is the size so they would fit in your pocket or evening bag
ConsThey are very difficult to work with, the shape is weird

I knew I needed this product but had no idea it existed until I ordered Retainer Brite. Its so nice not to have to stick my fingers in my mouth to remove my Invisalign-type retainers! A simple tool, but worth so much in convenience and hygiene.

Helps get the retainer out
Use this tool instead of putting your fingers in your mouth. Easy to get retainer out with this tool.

Great shape, hook a little short for me
The shape of this is excellent. For my Invisalign, it is hard to get the hooks to catch.
