Smilesaver™ Cleansing & Freshening Spray is the first solution of its kind in the market. Our spray is designed to help eliminate nasty bacteria harboring in clear aligners and retainers, in a minute. We help you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Removable retainers and clear aligners will, by their nature, increase oral bacterial load and plaque retention. Caries and periodontal disease become a greater risk for orthodontic patients. This is true regardless of the fact that the appliance should be removed to allow oral hygiene measures to take place. Oral hygiene will not be optimal if the appliance is not cleaned too!
Without proper cleaning, an appliance will transfer bacteria into the oral cavity, onto the teeth, tongue and gums, as soon as it is replaced in the mouth. These ‘appliance’ bacteria increase the overall bacteria load, potentially contributing to dental health problems, such as caries and periodontal disease, as well as to cosmetic problems, such as foul taste and offensive odors.
Removable retainers, therefore, do have an advantage over fixed retainers in that they can be removed for cleaning. Despite this advantage however, it should not be assumed that dental health cannot be affected. Specifically, areas that can be especially affected are those that are hidden (or comparatively so) from the patient’s view, e.g. palatal surfaces, upper incisors, upper and lower gingival margins. Once gingival swelling occurs, it becomes more feasible for plaque to build up sub-gingivally.
These concerns explain why regular follow-up with the dentist is essential for a thorough dental health assessment for good oral hygiene.
