How to care for your Retainers?

如何保养牙齿固定器?

保养固定器与保养牙套其实有很多相似之处,让我们一起看下去:

维持固定器的清洁

It is important to keep your retainers clean in order to maintain healthy oral hygiene. Just like you wouldn’t put a dirty object in your mouth, you wouldn’t want to put a dirty retainer in yours. The basics of cleaning your retainers is to rinse it out each time you remove it from your mouth. It is best to rinse it as soon as you remove it from your mouth before it dries. This makes it easier to clean any saliva and debris before it hardens.

Clean your aligners with Dr Clear Aligner’s Cleaning Tablets. Soak them with Dr Clear Aligners Cleaning Tablets for at least 10 to 15 mins a day. It will remove stains and maintain the aligner’s transparency and cleanliness. Rinse them thoroughly before putting them back on.

OR brushing them gently with a soft-bristled brush (not your personal toothbrush), you may choose to use a clear, liquid anti-bacterial soap but water would suffice. Do take note to be extra careful when using toothpaste as it may cause scratches or even discoloration

How to care for your Retainers?

不佩戴时该怎么做?

在不佩戴时把固定器存放在容器里可防止被弄脏和刮伤。先将固定器清洗干净,再放进容器中,这样能够防止细菌滋生。清洁固定器后,务必风干或将其放入有足够空气流通的容器中,因为潮湿的环境会导致霉菌和细菌滋生。切勿将固定器放在直射的阳光下或靠近热源的地方,这将可能导致塑料熔化或弯曲。将固定器存放在指定的容器中,这也能防止它被宠物损坏。

经常有人用纸巾包覆固定器而不小心丢失,所以请务必把固定器存放在容器中。

Last but not least, remember to clean your retainer cases as well. Even if you clean your retainers each time before you store them, bacteria may have accumulated in the case without you knowing. By practicing good hygiene, you can maintain or even extend your retainer’s life, saving you money in the long run. It would also be beneficial to your oral hygiene and help you keep that beautiful smile you’ve worked hard to achieve.
