FAQ

Most frequent questions and answers to our products

  • Why do I need to clean my mouth device with Smilesaver™ Spray or Guard Health™ Spray?

    Our spray products protect against common bacteria, such as Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and Streptococcus pyogenes, as well as yeast, Candida albicans, and molds, Aspergillus brasiliensis and Aspergillus niger.

  • Why is protection against bacteria necessary?

    It is necessary to protect against potentially harmful bacteria that can build up on the surface of removable oral appliances, such as clear aligners, retainers, night guards and sports mouth guards

  • Do the products taste good?

    Smilesaver™ Spray is available in a great tasting natural spearmint flavor to suit the needs of orthodontic users. Guard Health™ has a pleasant burst of mint flavor that athletes and sport enthusiasts really enjoy.

  • What lab data do you have to indicate that Smilesaver™ and Guard Health™ work and how long does it work?

    Soluria™ has microbiological data that show that these products reduce bacteria by up to 99.9% after 1 and 3 minutes of treatment. If your device is in contact with the product for longer periods, the products will continue to work.

  • Why are Smilesaver™ Spray and Guard Health™ Spray better than other oral device cleaners?

    Guard Health™ is the only available mouth guard cleansing and freshening spray that has naturally derived ingredients that the FDA has designated as GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe). The same is true for Smilesaver™.

  • How often can I use the spray on the device?

    Use it as often as needed. Any time you wear or remove your oral device. 

  • What happens if I swallow the solution?

    If you swallow some of the spray solution after spraying your appliance, you'll be fine. This is safe to ingest based upon the FDA’s safety classification of the contents as GRAS. The body will readily metabolize the ingredients in the Soluria™ sprays. These have been extensively tested, passing all toxicology studies and, thus, has been found to be safe and effective.

  • Are there any potential side effects from using Soluria's™ cleansing and freshening sprays for cleaning removable dental appliances or mouth guards?

    None. All ingredients in the formulations are present at levels well below anything that might potentially lead to toxicity. The ingredients are widely used in foods and cosmetics. When used in Soluria™ products, as intended, they are free from any reported adverse effects.

  • What is Xylitol and is Xylitol safe?

    Xylitol is as sweet as sugar, but with 33% less calories. Cavity-causing bacteria ferment sugar forming acids which demineralize tooth enamel which can lead to cavities. However, they do not ferment xylitol, so it is an effective sweetener which is safe to the teeth. Xylitol can also prevent bacterial adhesion to the tooth surfaces, preventing biofilm formation and so it can be beneficial to dental health: chewing gum with xylitol and toothpastes with xylitol have been clinically proven to reduce cavities by reducing demineralization and increase re-mineralization of weakened tooth enamel.

    Xylitol has no after taste and is safe for diabetics and individuals with hyperglycemia.

    Xylitol has no known toxicity or carcinogenicity and is considered GRAS by FDA. Xylitol has also been approved as a food additive for foods for individuals with special dietary needs.

  • Where do you produce Smilesaver™ and Guard Health™ sprays?

    Our products are made in the USA. The manufacturing facility is ISO certified and Kosher certified. It is FDA approved and adheres to ISO manufacturing standards.

  • Are these products approved?

    The sprays contain only FDA approved GRAS ingredients and are simply intended to clean and freshen removable dental appliances and mouth guards. They are not products delivering therapeutic effects in or to the mouth and so there is no “drug” approval process. The main ingredient has the ability to both clean and reduce bacteria, fungi, and molds. It is widely approved for use in food and cosmetic products on a global basis.
