Until now, brushing with a toothbrush and toothpaste and soaking in mouthwash have been the leading methods for cleaning these removable dental devices. However, as these options are not designed to clean the unique materials that these devices are made of it typically results in them not getting as clean as possible. Fresh Guard by Efferdent is the first product of its kind which was specially formulated to clean removable dental devices including Invisalign, retainers, and/or sports mouth guards.

I admittedly wear a mouth guard to sleep due to clenching my jaw too often, and find myself replacing it more times than necessary. Not because I chew my way through, or it’s time for a replacement, but because it never feels 100% clean. At times there’s an odor that toothpastes and mouthwash can mask until bacteria build up digs its way into crevices and grows. With Fresh Guard by Efferdent, I always felt like I was putting in a new guard every night. It was squeaky clean, had a fresh taste, but most of all that lingering odor was nowhere to be smelled.

“Nearly 44 million people in the U.S. wear removable dental devices, and it’s crucial to get them as clean as possible as part of good oral health,” said Craig Rudner, Senior Brand Innovation Manager on Fresh Guard by Efferdent™.

Fresh Guard by Efferdent is currently available as a soak and as wipes at most drugstores andAmazon.com. Fresh Guard Soak provides a deep clean, killing 99.9% of odor causing bacteria in just five minutes, with a convenient color change indicator that lets you know when the cleaning process is complete, while Fresh Guard Wipes are ideal for on-the-go cleaning. Perfect for after meals, after practice, or when traveling.
