“The Dental pod keeps aligners and retainers very clean, it is better than just using standard retainer cleaning tablets. Plus patients and I love the sleek aesthetic design, they've proved very popular.”
Only using a cleaning tablet is like cleaning your teeth with toothpaste but no toothbrush. Tablets will kill some of the bacteria on your appliance but the chemicals won’t penetrate any deeper than the very surface level. Deep bacteria and plaque will remain causing harm to your physical and dental health as well as keeping your appliance cloudy and dirty.
Toothbrushes cause abrasive damage to dental appliances resulting in scratches, discomfort and a cloudy look. Additionally, a toothbrush will not clean into every crevice leaving bacteria, plaque and grime on your oral appliance.
Not at all, the ultrasonic cleaning method is completely non-abrasive. It creates millions of micro bubbles which softly but thoroughly clean the entire surface of the appliance causing no damage. The Dental pod is designed to safely clean all kinds of materials from metal to aligner plastic.

This is not what the Dental pod was designed, engineered and tested to clean. However, many customers have let us know that they have had success cleaning jewelry. The underlying cleaning method of ultrasonic cavitation is something that has been used to clean jewellery by professionals for decades. We successfully tested cleaning precious metals in the Dental pod to ensure customers with grills could clean their appliances safely and effectively.
In certain situations, UV light can effectively sterilise objects. However, we decided not to include UV in the Dental pod for three reasons. Firstly, chemical sterilisation with our tablets is significantly more effective than UV sterilisation for oral appliances. Secondly, UV requires specific design considerations to be effective, which would weaken the more important ultrasonic effect. Finally, our sterilising tablet formulation offers additional advantages against UV such as being able to sterilise both sides of your appliance, removing odor and leaving your appliance with a fresh taste and smell.
We are so confident that you'll love the Dental pod we offer a fully money back guarantee up to 30 days after purchase. Not happy with the pod for any reason? No problem, we'll give you a full refund.
