Back to School Hacks for Brace and Invisalign Wearers
All of our kids are back to school and I don't know about yours, but mine slacked on hygiene-care all summer long. I'm not proud of it, but they went days without showers, went to bed too many nights without brushing their teeth, and wore the same clothes multiple days in a row. Rules and routine went out the window, but you know what?... we created a lot of memories during those stinky days that we'll treasure forever.
With that being said, now that we are back in school, our usual structured routine is in full swing. We've already made a point to get our children's teeth and braces back to optimal health with the help of OrthoFoam™ by EverSmile. If you're not familiar, I am thrilled to introduce them to you. OrthoFoam™ uses a hydrogen peroxide based, anionic cleaning technology that breaks down bacteria and plaque within 60 seconds of application. After doing some research I've learned that hydrogen peroxide destroys odor and color molecules, cleans/lightens metal, ceramic, and plastic braces and teeth. So, no matter what you're using to correct your childrens' precious teeth, OrthoFoam will keep cavities at bay, freshen their breath and effectively clean and brighten their teeth. It's the perfect solution for parents looking to improve their childrens' poor brushing habits.
It is super simple to use. Just apply your usual amount of toothpaste to your toothbrush and add 1 pump of OrthoFoam on top, then brush teeth for at least 60 seconds. Voilà!
For those of you in Invisalign, EverSmile has you taken care of as well. If you follow me on IG then you'll know I was in Invisalign for over a year to allow space for a dental implant. I'm now done with all my procedures, but am wearing Vivera retainers every night to keep my teeth in place. If you're not familiar, Vivera retainers are meant to last you 1-5 years. That's a LONG time to be wearing the same trays every night to bed! I've been using EverSmile® AlignerFresh™ to keep them clean and looking clear and it's working great. AlignerFresh is simple to use, just spray on the inside of your trays before putting them in your mouth and continue with your day. It comes in a small spray bottle that's perfect for whitening and cleaning aligner trays on-the-go; apply before heading into a meeting, after your lunch break or before bed. AlignerFresh™ uses hydrogen peroxide-based, anionic technology and in laboratory testing, 99.999% of common oral bacteria were killed within 60 seconds of exposure.
Something that personally attracted me is EverSmile is
Gluten Free + Sugar Free + Vegan + Cruelty Free
