How to Clean Your Retainer

Grungy buildup on an orthodontic retainer is very common. That buildup over time can cause discoloration, bad odors and even harmful bacteria. These are reasons to clean your retainer on a regular basis. Many retainer cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can start to cause wear and tear on your very important, very expensive investment. So what’s a patient to do? Prodentclean cleans your retainer with natural empowered oxygen as well as other naturally occurring ingredients.

Imagine, spraying or soaking your retainer for a few minutes and watching it begin to foam up while the grungy buildup begins to dissolve away. That’s how easy it is to clean your retainer with Prodentclean. Below are instructions with a spray top and a pour top. Order Prodentclean today and see how easy it is to keep your retainer clean with our safe Prodentclean cleansing rinse.

Soak Directions:
Place appliance in a container, add enough Prodentclean to cover appliance, then add equal parts water. Let device sit for 15 minutes, agitate or brush then rinse with water. Your device is ready to use.

Spray Directions:
Rinse device thoroughly in water. Spray generously with Prodentclean. Set aside for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with water. Your device is ready to use.

The Link Between Dental Health & Overall Health

You go to the dentist expecting to get a cleaning and hopefully a good report with no cavities. But your dentist can see more than just your dental health, as some serious health conditions can first be spotted during an oral exam.

For example, worn down teeth can mean that you are grinding your teeth at night. In this case, sustained jaw clenching at night while sleeping might mean that you will be prescribed a custom fitted night guard to protect your teeth and jaw. Research in the International Journal of Oral Science in 2014 reported that sustained jaw clenching (another characteristic of bruxism, or teeth grinding) can lead to severe damage of the tissue in the joint that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull.  If you are prescribed a night guard, then the added responsibility of keeping it clean will be added to your dental routine. In which case, a natural product like Prodentclean will be essential.

Additional symptoms that could signal additional medical referrals include persistent bleeding gums or bad breath, white patches inside your cheeks and mouth, inflamed gums, and extremely dry mouth. Each of these symptoms could mean something more is going on and is worth checking out with a primary care physician or specialist.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month

This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.

Since Orthodontics are such a big part of many children’s lives and that usually involves an orthodontic retainer or sports guard at some point, we are encouraging the use of Prodentclean to keep all orthodontic devices clean.

These devices can harbor some pretty nasty buildup if not properly cared for. Have you ever tried smelling a grungy mouth guard? If not, don’t start now. As you can imagine, that build up is not going to lend itself to a healthy dental environment. So this month is the perfect time to try Prodentclean and show your child how to simply spray the mouth guard with our solution then rinse and it’s ready to go.

And you dont have to worry about harsh chemicals like so many other cleaners have, we are a natural alternative to keeping retainers, sports guards and all orthodontist materials crystal clean. Learn more at Prodentclean.com

Study shows mouth guards harbor large numbers of bacteria.

According to a study that appears in the September/October 2007 issue of General Dentistry, mouthguards harbor large numbers of bacteria, yeasts and molds that can possibly lead to life and/or health-threatening infectious/inflammatory diseases.

“Everything that a microorganism needs to survive, including food and water, can be found in a mouthguard,” says Thomas Glass, DDS, PhD, lead author of the study. “While mouthguards appear solid, they are very porous, like a sponge, and with use, microorganisms invade these porosities.”

What are Biofilms and why does it matter?

What are Biofilms?

Biofilms may form on living or non-living surfaces and can be prevalent in natural, industrial and hospital settings.[3][6] The microbial cells growing in a biofilm are physiologically distinct from planktonic cells of the same organism, which, by contrast, are single-cells that may float or swim in a liquid medium.[7] Biofilms can be present on the teeth of most animals as dental plaque, where they may cause tooth decay and gum disease. (Source: Wikipedia)

Why Does it Matter?

Since biofilms form on non-living surfaces such as oral appliances including orthodontic devices such as retainers, and mouth guards, sports guards, and invisible aligners and yes even toothbrushes, the build-up of biofilms can lead to tooth decay and gum disease as well as other harmful infectious diseases.

It’s important to keep all dental products clean and prevent an environment in which biofilms can grow. This is why Prodentclean is the perfect solution to keeping your entire family’s dental products clean.

A simple spray of Prodentclean keep your dental products crystal clean and free of buildup.

Biofilms

Dr. Todd Morgan, DMD, has been at his Encinitas dental practice for decades.  He has four children ages’ 5-25, and prides himself on being a pioneer in the world of sleep medicine, and oral appliance solutions.  He was tired of watching his dedicated staff use harsh chemicals to clean patients’ appliances and dental equipment.  So it was a natural fit for him to co-develop the next best thing to hit the market, Prodentclean.  Prodentclean is an oral appliance cleaner, 100% safe and effective in cutting the buildup that develops on oral appliances.

Biofilms are diverse communities of bacteria and other microorganisms. They form primarily in moist environments or those that are conducive to bacterial growth, such as metals, plastics and medical equipment.  While a single type of organism can create a biofilm, naturally occurring biofilms are commonly made up of many different types of bacteria, fungi, algae, yeasts and other microorganisms.  Biofilms has been around for hundreds of years and although some Biofilms are good for the body, many Biofilms if left untreated can cause serious disease and infection. (Learn more on Biofilm click here).

Prodentclean uses a combination of natural ingredients strong enough to breakdown harmful buildup.  Prodentclean can be used by people of all ages safely cleaning dentures, retainers, sports related mouth guard, night guards and toothbrushes.  Dr. Morgan now uses Prodentclean at his dental practice as well as in his home!
