Keeping your smile straight and fresh with Fresh Guard™

Keeping your smile straight and fresh with Fresh Guard™ at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet -

During my time as on the Invisalign Teen Mom Advisory Board, I heard so many stories from adults who had braces as kids but were going through braces again because they stopped wearing their retainers. You have to wear a retainer at least 8 to 10 hours a day to keep your smile straight and so many of us didn’t.

I found myself in that situation, because my retainer was gross tasting and nasty smelling no matter how much I brushed it and soaked it in mouth wash. I hated wearing it, so I stopped when I went off to college. My teeth ended up moving and all my parents’ hard earned money was wasted.

Luckily, my Invisalign retainer isn’t that bad. I brush it each morning with water (toothpaste can damage retainers) and air dry it. Still there’s some mouth film build-up on it that I can’t remove, and it’s starting to get rather gross after over a year of wearing it. Luckily, there’s a product like Fresh Guard™ Soak to help keep my retainer clean, fresh tasting and smelling!

Easy to use

What I like best about Fresh Guard™ is that it’s very easy to use. All you need to do it fill a glass or cup with warm water. Then tear open one packet of Fresh Guard™ Soak and pour the contents into the water. The solution will foam up and turn blue. Place your retainer in it and soak for 5 minutes. The solution will turn clear when it’s done. Remove your retainer and rinse thoroughly. (Don’t soak your retainer more than 10 minutes.)

How to do a Fresh Guard™ Soak at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet -

Since my normally clear retainer was very cloudy with a lot of white, hardened build-up, I did two cleanings – one for 5 minutes and the next one for 10 minutes. The first cleaning got rid of the funky smell and left the retainer tasting fresher, but it still had a lot of build-up on it. The second cleaning got rid of nearly all of the build-up and my retainer looks almost new on about 90% of the surfaces.

I’m really impressed how clean my retainer was after a couple of treatments of Fresh Guard™ Soak. The product is amazing and I’m going to keep on using it. Luckily, there’s a $1 off coupon for Fresh Guard™ on their website, so I can stock up. (Use their store locator to find where Fresh Guard™ is sold near you.

You can also use Fresh Guard™ Soak on mouth guards, removable braces, and even your plastic case to keep everything fresh smelling and clear of odor causing bacteria, stains, and mouth film build-up.

Fresh Guard™ also has a Wipes product, which comes in handy if you don’t have water to do a soak, like when traveling or at school or work. The wipes packages are small enough to keep in your wallet, pocket, purse or backpack.
