Dr. Cara Piskai Selected As Orthodontic Expert for Forbes Article

By: Piskai Orthodontics
VOORHEES, N.J. - March 1, 2023 - PRLog -- Isn't it reassuring to know when an orthodontist is a sought-after, national expert? Dr. Cara Piskai of South Jersey's Piskai Orthodontics recently contributed to a Forbes Health (https://www.forbes.com/health/) article talking about best practices (and not-so-best practices) for retainer maintenance.

In the online Forbes article, "How To Clean Your Retainer: Tips And Tricks" (https://www.forbes.com/health/dental/how-to-clean-your-retainer/) by Natasha Caleel Freutel (https://www.forbes.com/health/author/natasha-freutel/), Dr. Piskai discusses steps for cleaning both removable and fixed retainers. Retainer care is best done as part of the morning routine.

Cleaning Removable Retainers

For removable retainers — like Essix or Hawley retainers — Dr. Piskai suggests setting aside a dedicated ultra-soft toothbrush just for retainer cleaning. Use room temperature water and gently brush both the inside and outside. Once done, pat dry with a clean paper towel and set it in the case to air dry.

Cleaning Permanent Retainers

Permanent retainers should be brushed and flossed along with teeth. Use regular floss as-is or with the help of a floss threader, or try an interdental brush. Flossing cleans teeth and the attached retainer by helping get rid of bacteria, food debris, and sticky plaque in those hard-to-reach areas.

Bring Retainers to Dental Check Ups

In the article, Dr. Piskai (https://piskaiorthodontics.com/meet-dr-piskai/) also discusses other tips and tricks for at-home retainer care, as well as a reminder to bring retainers in at every regularly-scheduled dental check up. A dentist can check a removable retainer for any damage, that the retainer still fits correctly, and might even be able to provide a deep, ultrasonic cleaning. For bonded (permanent) retainers, the dental hygienist can perform an extra deep clean around the retainer, floss, and offer advice on how to clean it better at home.
