My moms dog had my retainer in his mouth and she never brushes his teeth. Can I wear them?
Her dog never gets his teeth brushed/cleaned and today he had my retainers in his mouth. About 2 minutes after he had them I soaked them in water for 40 minutes with regular dish soap( not anti bacterial) because that’s all I had then I put them in water and salt for 15 minutes and then back in my mouth after rinising them. Am I at any type of risks of infection. I also just finished taking antibiotics

You'll be fine, i'm sure

Brush the retainer/s with toothpaste and a tooth brush and they should be fine to wear.
When you're not wearing them, keep the retainer in a case, or at least in a drawer or cabinet so this doesn't happen again.Source(s): Orthodontic assistant with over 35 years of experience.
