What Happens if You Don’t Clean Your Invisalign or Retainer

By Beasley Group

Sigmund Freud said it when he spoke about oral fixation. As a baby, we are inclined to place everything in front of us into our mouths. Luckily, we have our mothers who watch over us, reminding us of all the germs we come in contact with! As you get older, you become more aware of bacteria and prioritize oral hygiene in order to achieve the perfect smile.

After months and years of having to go to the orthodontist to make sure that your smile is all that you wanted, you want to keep your pearly whites in tip-top condition. The first step is learning about your retainer. If you think that you can neglect that important piece, then you are mistaken. That means wearing it every night and when you aren’t wearing it, making sure it stays clean!


Failure to clean your retainer is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Running short on time, forgetting to do so or just assuming that since you are the only one using it, it doesn’t get filthy, will be your downfall. Your retainer will come in direct contact with many things, from sugars in your daily snacks to bacteria. So in addition to you developing and maintaining excellent oral hygiene practices, it is important to clean your retainer to help prevent harmful germs from attacking your teeth, and help prevent tooth decay!
