how to clean your retainers with fresh guard

New way to clean retainers with fresh guard by efferdent

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Fresh Guard™. All opinions are my own, especially since I use this product every day of my life.

I share a lot of personal things on this blog, like:

One thing I have never admitted to, until now, is that I wear a retainer.

Say what?

Yes, a retainer. It’s a sexy retainer, I swear, but nevertheless, a retainer.

I only wear it a few nights a week to keep the awesome alignment of my teeth granted to me by Invisalign about 10 years ago (I had quite a prominent snaggle tooth for many years of my life that made me cringe every time I smiled), and so, getting Invisalign was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. However no one warned me that after the straightening process was all done, I would need to wear a retainer FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

Once I got over the shock of having to wear a retainer, I decided to embrace the retainer. I mean, what else was there to do? So, I learned to love my sexy retainer, but what I didn’t learn was how to properly clean the retainer, because really, until recently there was not a thorough way to do it. I used the toothbrush/toothpaste method, which didn’t really work, and a yellowish film started to threaten the sexiness of my retainer.

BUT . . . that has all changed thanks to a product I was just given called Fresh Guard™.

There are two versions of Fresh Guard™: One is a 5-minute-soak-in-a-solution and the other is a fresh wipe that can be used on the go, particularly for people who have devices that need to be worn all day.

So whether it’s you or your children who are looking for a way to clean your retainers, mouth guards or removable braces, Fresh Guard™ is the ticket for you!

Here is how the soak solution works:

  • Dissolve the Fresh Guard solution into a glass of warm water.
  • Drop in your retainer, mouth guard, or removable brace
  • Let it soak for a minimum of 5 but not more than 10 minutes.
  • Remove and rinse and it’s ready to go.
  • Clean look, clean smell, clean feel. Boom! Sexy retainer restored.

How to clean a retainer with fresh guard

Note: As the Fresh Guard™ box clearly states, devices that have been building up yellowish residue over many years, which is the case with mine, may not become completely clear of all stains, but I noticed a HUGE difference in the quality and color of my retainer after two soaks. And Fresh Guard is WAY better than just using a tooth brush and tooth paste.

For some Fresh Guard™ deals check out their Special Offers page.

Fresh Guard™ is specially formulated to clean mouth guards, retainers, and clear braces.
