|Comment||Hi, Thanks for taking the time to have a look. Your reply has put me at ease. I've started cleaning my retainer every day (just brushing it with some toothpaste), and I'm looking in to revising my brushing technique. One thing I'm doing now is brushing near the gumline of my front bottom teeth with a small interdental brush in an upwards motion. This seems to be very effective at removing the small amount plaque that seemed to be there every morning (it looked like a small amount of tarter build up, but it's soft, so I'm presuming it's plaque). It's very delicate too, so I feel that my gums are not being abused this way. Thanks again, Matt|
