Polident retainer cleanser is an antibacterial solution safe and effective at cleaning mouth guards, night guards, sport guards and retainers. Retainers, and other similar items, sit inside your mouth against your teeth which allows bacteria, plaque, and tartar to quickly accumulate on it. This can cause the retainer to obtain a bad odor and leaves a higher risk for mouth infections if you put a dirty retainer back in your mouth.
The oxidants (sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate and potassium monopersulfate) in this cleanser work to remove stains that can build up over time while also killing any bacteria being harbored by your retainer.
Carefully read the instruction guide provided with the medication.
Drop one Polident cleanser tablet into enough warm water to cover denture. After soaking for 3-5 minutes, brush denture with the solution using a soft brush. Rinse the denture well with running water for 1 minute prior to inserting into your mouth. Discard solution after use.

How often should I clean my retainer?
It is recommended you clean your retainer on a daily basis (once a day).
Can I reuse the solution?
No. Once you have cleaned the retainer you will need to discard of the used solution. Use new solution during your next retainer cleaning.
Should I use 1 tablet per denture (one upper and one lower) or 1 tablet for all the dentures I have?
1 tablet will be effective at cleaning both the top and bottom denture!
Why can’t I just use normal toothpaste?
Regular toothpaste is meant for hard enamel in real teeth, not the much softer acrylic used in dentures. Regular toothpaste is too abrasive and may scratch the surface of dentures.
