Cleaning Your Removable Retainer
Brush your removable appliance every day as a part of your regular brushing
and flossing schedule. Because food particles and plaque can accumulate
on your appliance just as they do on your teeth, brush the appliance daily.
Dissolve a Polident, Efferdent or other denture-cleaning tablet in a glass
of tap water at room temperature and soak your appliance once a month.
Your appliance will taste better, and you will prevent plaque and bacterial
accumulation. Watch the video for instructions to floss your bottom retainer.
