INTRODUCTION: The evolution in the design of the attachments and the greater number of them in mechanics, promotes more precise tooth movements and, consequently, results in better adaptation and retention of the aligner to the dental arch, which makes its removal difficult. Therefore, devices that facilitate the removal of the aligner and assist in hygiene are necessary. OBJECTIVE: This article aims to present the patent of a device for the removal and cleaning of orthodontic aligners, commercially called OutKlean® (Coraldent, São Paulo/SP, Brazil). CONCLUSION: This device will facilitate aligner removal and allow the patient to choose to clean the appliance or his/her oral cavity.
