well-functioning. Rinse and Brush Your Custom Mouthpiece Often

This may mean rinsing your mouthpiece after each use or after each meal. Using a soft-bristled brush, gently brush all sides of the mouthpiece. This will help remove pieces of debris and even loosen plaque that may be developing on the mouthpiece. Overall, this will prevent staining and make cleaning your mouthpiece an easier task.

Deep Clean Your Mouthpiece

Once or twice a week, deep clean your mouthpiece by soaking it in denture cleaner. This will help kill

germs that cause odor in addition to controlling the growth of bacteria and microorganisms on your

mouthpiece. Denture cleaner can be purchased over the counter.

Store your Mouthpiece in a Clean, Dry Place.

Allow your mouthpiece to dry completely after cleaning to prevent bacterial growth. When not in use, it is

important to store it in a clean, dry place for the same reason. A mouthpiece case can be very handy for

this, but should also be kept clean and dry. This also adds a layer of protection for mouthpieces so they

don’t accidentally get lost or broken!

Don’t use Hot or Boiling Water to clean Your Mouthpiece

While instinct may tell you to use hot or boiling water to clean your mouthguards, retainers, partials or

dentures, you should avoid doing this because it can end up warping and misshaping your custom

mouthpiece. Instead, opt for warm water using the cleaning tips above.

What Retainer Is Best For You

The ideal type of smile consist’s of straight, white teeth that are free of cavities along with fresh, minty breath. Although some people are lucky to be born with the ‘perfect smile’, not all people are entitled to that privilege. Fortunately, everyone can obtain the smile they want. The practice of odontology has evolved over the years due to the rapid advancement of technology and has made it easier for all dental patients to obtain a healthy and immaculate smile. One of the most popular and successful methods of fixing people’s smiles are retainers and Aligners.
Retainers do exactly as they imply, they retain your current tooth position, therefore, whatever position your teeth are in when you place them into the ‘Impression Material’…is the position the retainer will be made.  If you’re looking for movement, may I suggest you look at our aligners:
The Aligner trays are only sold in singles, designed to do minor tooth movement…each able to do 1mm of tooth movement (about 3X more aggressive than Invisalign)…once you’ve completed the three-week application, if you’re pleased with the results, you would move to the next aligner by making the next purchase (if need be)…at a fraction of Invisalign, with no trip to a dental office.

3 Reasons to Keep Wearing Your Retainer


  1. Stabilize: After years of orthodontic movement, your teeth need time to stabilize. Sleeping regularly with your retainer provides your mouth that much needed stabilization period.
  2. Memory Shift: Our teeth and gums retain memory of their previous positions. Even after years of steady orthodontic reorganizing, without a retainer, your teeth can shift right back to where they came from. Wearing your retainer nightly avoids this reality.
  3. Tame Your Tongue: Some orthodontia patients suffer from nightly tongue thrusting. This added pressure to the front teeth, overtime, can push teeth out of position. Sleeping with your retainer can quiet the effects of tongue thrusting.

Are you looking for a retainer to suit your cosmetic dental needs? Dental Lab Direct offers quality cosmetic dental products and care to give you back your beautiful smile.
