A 35-year-old male asked:
is it safe to clean your retainers with a colgate soft total advanced whitening toothbrush? would the whitening in the toothbrush harm the retainer?

Whitening: Anything labeled whitening usually has higher than normal levels of abrasives. Brush your retainer 2x/day with a plain soft toothbrush, no toothpaste. Put your retainer into denture cleaner (follow package directions) EVERY day.
