After feeding, or at least once a day, remove the plate and rinse it in cool water. You may also hold the plate in the palm of your hand and use a toothbrush and toothpaste to brush the plate. Remember to rinse the plate well with water to remove the taste of the toothpaste. The plate must be treated with care. Since the plate is made of plastic, please do not:
- Boil or heat the plate in any way - it will distort;
- Put it in your pocket or drop it - it will get broken;
- Wrap it in tissue or a napkin - someone will throw it out;
- Leave it lying around - pets and children are very curious.
The safest place for the plate is in your baby’s mouth. When you need to take it out, please put it in the case provided. Your name, address and phone number should be clearly marked on the case. Another very important point to remember is that if the plate is not worn for long periods, your mouth can change slightly and the plate will no longer fit. Therefore, please try to keep the plate in most of the time and call your orthodontist to have the plate checked if you are having significant problems.
