Brushing your teeth regularly will help keep them healthy and keep germs away. However, it is just as important to clean your retainer, aligner or nightguard daily too.
WHAT ARE GERMS AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
Germs such as bacteria are invisible to the human eye but live everywhere including inside your mouth and on your skin. Your mouth naturally contains hundreds of different types of bacteria. However, if too many germs build-up they can cause problems including cavities and bleeding gums.
WHY GERMS ACCUMULATE ON RETAINERS, ALIGNERS AND NIGHTGUARDS?
If you do not clean your retainer, aligner or nightguard daily it is an ideal place for germs to multiply and grow.
CAN GERMS IMPACT MY ORAL HEALTH?
If germs are not regularly removed from your teeth and removable dental appliance, they can impact your oral health, leading to problems like bad breath.
WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO KEEP GERMS AT BAY?
Just like brushing your teeth, it’s important to get into a habit of regularly cleaning your retainer, aligner or nightguard every day.
