In June last year, I finally took the plunge and began my journey getting my crooked tooth straightened. During the course of treatment, I came to realise just how off my bite was, and can’t recommend Smile Direct enough, for how smooth and pleasant they have made my journey to achieving the perfect smile.

Since then, I have washed and brushed so many pairs of aligners, and have in some cases cracked or even snapped a pair or more with my overzealous cleaning of them. Which is why, now that I am close to the end of my Smile journey, I am so happy that Pearlie White, (which honest to God happens to be my personal go-to oral care brand), has launched a retainer cleaning tablet.

Just the thought that I no longer have to brush my aligners, and soon to be made retainer, makes me dizzy with joy(and possibly too much caffeine).

The newly launched Pearlie White RetainerClean Fast Cleaning Tablets 42s can be used daily to thoroughly cleanse dental appliances, leaving them clean, bright, odour-free, stain free and plaque and tartar-free.

Trust me when I say that it is so important for dental appliances to be kept clean, pristine and bacteria-free so that they can last longer and perform optimally. Furthermore, you do not want to be putting something germy and gross into your mouth. And just in case you were wondering, you can’t bleach or boil those suckers, unless you want to wave bye-bye to them.

Your aligner and retainer needs to be cleaned each time before you put them into your mouth. The Pearlie White RetainerClean Fast Cleaning Tablets 42s, has been scientifically formulated for Aligners, Clear and Wired Retainers, Gum Shields, Removable Braces and Sports/Mouth/Night Guards.

These tablets are effective and gentle on most removable dental appliances, and can be used daily to deeply cleanse dental appliances in just three minutes, killing 99.99% of odour causing bacteria and effectively removing stains, discolouration, plaque and tartar. Also, it has a fresh minty flavour, which is far more pleasant than a soapy tasting mouth ( I speak from experience).
