The Things that Make Me Smile #FreshGuard #spon

There are many things in my life that put a smile on my face. I think being able to smile everyday at something can make life go a little bit easier. So I try to make a point in my day to make it special for the ones I love around me.

My daughter, Mary, for instance always keeps me laughing. She comes up with the silliest poses and is constantly a camera hog.

Our new Pear Head Chihuahua, Charlie Brown, makes me laugh daily. Of course it's not so funny that he's not potty trained yet, but we're getting there.

And there's our new Cockatiel, Smoochy, who really lives up to her name. She eats out of my hand, drinks water from a real glass cup and loves to be pet and held like a baby.

With all these reasons to smile everyday, I want to make sure my smile is looking it's best. And that's why I got braces as a teenager. Before braces, my smile was a mess. Honestly, I never did smile because my teeth were so crooked and I was embarrassed of them. But after many years of braces, I got a smile to be proud of. And I want to keep it that way so I have a retainer. I've had my retainer for almost ten years now but did you know that even after braces your teeth can still move? It really is true because my top teeth have shifted a bit.

Not many adults have retainers or removable appliances but the ones who do want to make sure they are super clean. I am a clean freak and I am always making sure I am completely clean. And that's why I clean my retainer with Fresh Guard™.

Fresh Guard™, from the makers of Efferdent, is a new cleaning product for removable dental appliances. Currently, no other product exists that is designed to clean the unique materials these appliances are made of. And that really is true! For all the years I have had my retainer, I have cleaned it with a toothbrush and toothpaste but that was never enough. Toothpaste doesn't kill bacteria and brushing can actually corrode the metal after a while. And that's not something I want happening in my mouth!

Using Fresh Guard™ is super easy too since they have two different products for your needs.
1) Fresh Guard™ by Efferdent Soak, a 5-minute deep clean used at home, and 2) Fresh Guard™ by Efferdent Wipes, a convenient on-the-go cleaning, with no water needed.

After using Fresh Guard™ for a few weeks now, I can really tell a difference in how my mouth feels. My retainer feels new again and I feel so much more clean.

Fresh Guard™ is specially formulated to clean mouth guards, retainers, and clear braces. Fresh Guard™ Soak kills 99.9% of odor-causing bacteria in just 5 minutes while Fresh Guard™  Wipes offer a convenient on-the-go cleaning solution with no water needed.
