Why is it important to clean and sanitize orthodontic appliances?
During an orthodontic treatment, orthodontic appliances become an ideal environment for the proliferation of bacteria, plaque and food residues.
Failure to clean and sanitize appliances can lead to serious oral health problems, including tooth decay, gingivitis and pyorrhea.
Additionally, plaque buildup can cause a bad smell and cause embarrassment in relationships with other people.
To avoid all this, it is essential to take care of the cleaning of orthodontic appliances.
Not only will you ensure your oral health, but you will also be able to have greater confidence during your daily activities.
What is Bitewash and how it can help you
Bitewash is a sanitizer with a specific disintegrating action for orthodontic devices, aligners, mouthguards, myofunctional educators and bites.
What does disruptive action mean?
It means that the Bitewash product has the ability to break up (or break up) the organic and inorganic residues that accumulate on the surface of orthodontic appliances, such as bacterial plaque and food residues.
The disintegration, in fact, helps to effectively remove dirt and bacteria present on the surface of the appliance, helping to eliminate bad odors and prevent oral health problems.
Its innovative formula is highly effective and can be used on any type of orthodontic appliance, whether it is fixed or removable.
Fields of application
Our sanitizer with disintegrating action is specific for cleaning and sanitizing orthodontic devices, aligners, mouthguards, myofunctional educators and mandibular protusors.
Its use is validated by Aligner Academy Italia, D-Fender and Dr. Burlon PROTRUSOR ®, as Bitewash is a highly effective product which eliminates bacterial flora and dirt on the surface, preventing the formation of bacterial contamination, reducing bad smells.
A preliminary study was conducted on the use of Bitewash, using two different analysis techniques: the bioluminometer and the electronic bug.
In particular, the bioluminometer is an instrument that is used to detect the presence of bacteria on the surface of orthodontic appliances, while scanning electron microscopy is a high-resolution imaging technique that allows you to view minute details on the surface of the objects under examination.
Therefore, the analysis with these techniques was conducted on the surfaces of removable orthodontic aligners after the use of Bitewash, in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the product in eliminating bacteria and cleaning the surfaces of the orthodontic appliances.
