The best toothbrush and mouthwash if you have Invisalign...or if you don't.

The Best Toothbrush and Mouthwash if you have Invisalign

My toothbrush and I have gotten really close the past few months. 

In February, I got braces for the first time. Adult braces. Invisalign to be exact. I never needed braces as a kid, or at least that's what the dentist told my mom, but as I got older, it seemed like my teeth kept shifting. My kids are all in orthodontic treatment or have been at one point or another in the past five years. I've spent a lot of time at the ortho, which is probably why I finally decided to get a consult for myself.
Long story short, I settled on Invisalign.  If you aren't familiar with Invisalign, you can read this post
Just a quick fill-in though, Invisalign are clear aligner trays that you wear for two weeks at a time. They fit almost like a mouth guard over your teeth.  You can pop them off when you eat or drink so that you don't have any food restrictions. 
I've had people tell me that they didn't know I was wearing braces at all, so they are sort of clear{ish} or my friends are not the most observant.  You choose.
Either way, because I have something covering my teeth, I find that it's less scuzzy to brush my pearly whites as much as possible after I eat or drink and before I put the aligners back in again.  I like to eat a lot, so I find that I'm brushing my teeth.  A lot.
I've found a new awesome product that I love and it would be awesome whether or not you are wearing adult braces.  Because who doesn't want fresh breath and non-scuzzy teeth?

I don't want to sell out my Sonicare toothbrush because, well, I love my Sonicare toothbrush.  BUT an electric toothbrush I found isn't the best for cleaning and brushing my aligner trays. Those trays rest on my teeth and get gross so brushing them is essential.  I need a good brush that will get in the small tray and in all of the ridges and this Reach® Complete Care™ CURVE toothbrush does just that.  It's angled and got triple bristles so that it gets in all the grooves. It's like the ultimate cleaning machine.

I've also found that in order to feel like my teeth and mouth are fresh, I have to use mouthwash.  I've always had mouthwash under my sink but rarely used it {because I've got a man that's why!}, until I got Invisalign. Seriously, makes a huge difference! 

Because I hate counter clutter this Reach® Complete Care™ mouth rinse has an attached dosage cup, toothbrush holder and non mess pump.  It practically does all the work for you. Not only that, the 8-1 attacks all the stuff I need attacking.  You know the stuff...bad breath, gingivitis, plaque...

You may not have Invisalign like me, but all of us want clean fresh breath and really, there are so many products out there, who knows which one to grab when you are in the moment.  Grab these. Seriously. They are my go to the six jillion times I brush my teeth a day.
