When I got to college, I was surprised that some of my friends who had retainers had never heard of Efferdent before. As someone who has to wear a retainer regularly, Efferdent is a product that is super useful for me.
When I first got my retainer, I was constantly brushing my it with my toothbrush, as I didn’t think there was any other way to clean it. However, as anyone who has tried it knows, washing a retainer with a toothbrush isn’t easy, and it doesn’t work very well either. At least for me, there were always stains that I could never get out of my retainer.
I am not exactly sure what is in Efferdent, but I know that it works really well for cleaning retainers. It is specially made for the job, and it works as soon as you put the Efferdent tablet into a cup of water along with your retainer. If you have never used it before, it will make cleaning your retainer much easier in the future.
There are many different brands for retainer cleaners, and I don’t think there is too much difference between them; normally, it is only $5 or so for a box of 100 tablets or so, so they are also cheap. Especially given the current climate, it is really important to have good hygiene. I would highly recommend getting a box of Efferdent if you have a retainer and don’t use it already!
