EVERY TUESDAY we will be giving you a TUESDAY TIP! Some helpful advice on caring for your teeth/ braces!!
*Here is a tip for those of you with an essix retainer! *
You can clean your retainer with mixture of 1 part bleach : 10 parts water for 5-10 minutes. You can also even use any traditional persulfate cleanser or non persulfate cleanser such as Dentasoak. Call us to ask for some cleaning solution for your retainers! We have it available in the practice!
Below are things that you should know about your essix retainers!
Do not clean your retainers with toothpaste
Avoid over soaking your retainers
Do not expose your retainers to excessive heat/ very hot water
Never use vinegar as a retainer cleaner
Do not keep your retainers in closer reach of pets.. they seem to love them!!
IF YOU MISPLACE YOUR RETAINER CALL US TO SCHEDULE A NEW ONE ASAP!
Call or email us with any queries! Happy Tuesday 🙂
