I’ve Stopped Using Denture Cleanser on My Night Guard

From The Disturbing Ingredient Hidden in Your Denture Cleanser:

Accidental consumption of denture and retainer cleansers can include…

  • Abdominal Pain
  • Burns
  • Bleaching of tissue
  • Blood in the Urine
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Vomiting
  • Breathing Problems
  • Low Blood Pressure
  • Seizures
  • Death

Bottom line: If you drank the stuff, it could send you to the Emergency Room. So why let your dental appliance, something that sits in your mouth for 8 hours a day or more, marinate in it?

Needless to say, from here on, I’ll soak mine in water and brush it with a Sonicare and toothpaste.
