Item Description

DentaSoak persulfate-free retainer, denture, and dental appliance cleaner is a combination of two types of ingredients: a liquid and a powder. To use DentaSoak, mix the liquid packet together with cold water, add the powder packet, then close and gently shake the soaking bath (included). Watch the video.

Once the solution is mixed, it lasts for ONE WEEK. That's right, you mix it once, and use it to disinfect and clean your retainer all week long. At the end of the week, simply spill it away and mix a new batch for the following week. An incredibly convenient solution for kids who are lazy about keeping their retainers or mouthguards clean! Each DentaSoak Starter Kit contains enough solution-making packets to last 3 months.

The DentaSoak Starter Kit comes with one special soaking bath which will accurately measure the amount of solution you need to make. The soaking bath is specially designed to help you mix the product correctly, and includes a handy lift-out tray. (Although the soaking bath is quite spill resistant, we recommend that you mix and shake the product over a sink).

DentaSoak has a minty-fresh fragrance, and it's the perfect solution for people who are allergic to the ingredient Persulfate. In just one 15 soak per day, DentaSoak kills 99% of bacteria and keeps your retainer free of smelly plaque build-up. After soaking your retainer for 15 minutes, rinse it with cool water. The manufacturer advises that you do not soak your appliance more than the recommended 15 minutes. This product is NOT recommend for retainers that contain metal solder; those should not be soaked in any product.

Each box of DentaSoak includes a soaking bath, full instructions, and enough solution-making packets to last 3 months. It's great for all types of removable dental appliances, such as retainers, aligners, mouthguards, snoring and apnea devices, and even dentures!

After you finish the Starter Kit, you can order DentaSoak Refill Kits, which do not contain the soaking bath.

Want to save money on a one-year supply of DentaSoak? Then add to your cart:

1 DentaSoak Starter Kit, and

3 DentaSoak Refill Kits

(The Refill Kits do not include the soaking bath so they are less expensive and are better for the environment!)

Watch our video: "How to use DentaSoak"

DentaSoak is not sold in local stores.
  • You get one mixing cup and a three-month supply of DentaSoak, plus full instructions. The manufacturer advises that you do not soak your appliance more than the recommended 15 minutes.

  • DentaSoak does not contain Persulfate. Sorry, we do not have a list of other ingredients. If you have an allergy concern, please contact us.

  • Safe for all types of dental appliances: Hawley retainers (metal and plastic), Invisalign, Essix Retainers, Bridges, Partials, and even Dentures!

  • Each mixture lasts 7 days. Kills 99% of bacteria and removes white plaque buildup (removal of buildup may take 3 to 4 soakings).

  • If DentaSoak has prolonged contact with porous surfaces (e.g., marble) it may cause discoloration or even a slight etching effect to the surface. Please be careful if your countertop is marble.

  • Note: If you have a clear plastic (Invisalign-type) Essix retainer, and amalgam (metal) fillings in your teeth, the fillings may create unremovable black stains on your retainer. There is no retainer cleaner on the market that will remove these black stains, because the plastic of your retainer has actually changed color from the metal in the fillings. Ask your dentist or orthodontist if you need more information about this issue.

Lynn Says

DentaSoak is the perfect solution for people who don't have the time to mix a retainer cleaning solution every day. Just mix up one batch at the beginning of the week, and you're good to go for the rest of the week.

If your retainer has white plaque buildup, DentaSoak will remove the buildup after 3 or 4 soakings. Then you can continue to use the product daily to prevent the white buildup from coming back.

Another advantage is that this product doesn't contain the chemical Persulfate. It's one of the few dental appliance cleaners on the market which doesn't contain this chemical.

Customers sometimes ask whether they can use DentaSoak with one of our sonic cleaners. The answer is: no. The solution needs to be carefully mixed using the cup that comes with the Starter Kit. Otherwise, you may dilute it too much (or not enough).

what are the ingredients of the DentaSoak?

The ingredientsof DentaSoak are a proprietary trade secret; therefore, do not have an ingredientslist. If you are concerned about a specific ingredient due to allergy, we cancontact the manufacturer for you and ask whether DentaSoak contains thatingredient.

Can this be used on hawley retainers with solder? I'm looking to clean the white gunk from my kids retainers but don't want to ruin them. I noticed one of the reviews mentioned a problem with the solder when using this product. Thanks
1 Answer
If your retainer contains metal solder, you should not use ANY product that involves soaking. Even if you follow the manufacturer's instructions exactly, the solder will most likely crumble over time. (It's also easy to forget and soak your retainer longer than recommended, exposing it to the chemicals which will effect the solder). The only products we recommend for retainers with metal solder are Cleanse Freshen Go wipes or spray, and OAP Cleaners.

July 18, 2016
My daughter started wearing her Essix retainer 2 weeks ago. I ordered the starter kit and am waiting for it to arrive, but wanted to make sure it is ok to use warm water even though the orthodontist said to use only cold water. Will it work with either cold or warm water? I was told by my daughter's orthodontist to use cold water when cleaning. They instructed to use hand soap and a q tip. I'm finding that it's not working well so I am giving this a try. Based on the reviews, I am hoping it will help.
1 Answer
Great question, Christine! DentaSoak works with cold water, so you will be fine using it as your daughter's orthodontist instructed. Remember, you mix DentaSoak once and use it for an entire week, so of course the mixture stays cool (or room temperature). The thing that you must be most careful of is using very hot water on an Essix retainer. Lukewarm is OK, but hot is bad! Your orthodontist is warning you about this so that the retainer doesn't warp due to the heat. Be sure to never leave it in a hot car or in the hot sun, either! And of course, never microwave it or put it in the dishwasher!

December 26, 2016
Is there a watertight version of the soak bath available? This product is convenient since the mixture needs to be prepared only once a week, but it is difficult to travel with a container that leaks.
1 Answer
Great question, Jon! No, DentaSoak doesn't come with a water-tight soaking bath. However, you can mix the solution and put it into a leakproof plastic container. It's easy to find such a container in most supermarkets. One with a screw top would probably work best. For extra assurance, you might want to then put the container into a plastic zipper bag to ensure that nothing leaks.

from Oberlin, OH asked:
September 4, 2015
Can I leave my retainer soaking in this for longer than 20 minutes? If I do, will anything happen?
1 Answer
We have found that if your retainer does not contain metal solder, soaking longer than 15 to 20 minutes should be fine in most cases and should not harm your oral appliance. (Most soaking solutions will dissolve metal solder after a period of time). If you're not sure whether your appliance contains metal solder, please ask your dentist or orthodontist. Some customers have told us that soaking a clear plastic retainer (like Invisalign or Essix retainers) in DentaSoak for longer than 20 minutes has sometimes resulted in the retainer picking up a blue tinge from the color of the DentaSoak. The blue tinge usually disappears over time, however. With that said, please be aware that the official manufacturer's instructions recommend that you do not soak your oral appliance longer than 15 to 20 minutes. When in doubt, we suggest that you defer to the manufacturer's instructions.

Great product that solves ongoing problem!

I have been a user of another great product for several years but always struggled with keeping the device clean, sanitized, and fresh-smelling. My dentist strongly recommended DentaKit, which I ordered online. The transaction was easy-peasy and the order arrived ahead of schedule - and the product is terrific! It cleans and deodorizes in 15 minutes, with an absolute minimum of effort. Thanks again and again for creating a real hit!!!

It seems to be working (my retainer is clearer) and it has a nice minty smell. Iíve forgotten my retainer in the soak sometimes and it turns a little blue but no one sees it anyway so itís okay. Better than denture cleaner.

Cleans very well!
June 6, 2021
I use this on my nightguard. I vowed I wouldnít use anything else, but I ran out and used something from the drug store and Amazon for months. Mistake....build up happened. Denture brush and toothpaste didnít get it off. So ordered this again. Takes a while to arrive in Canada, but after 2 weeks all the build up is gone. And I find it very convenient not to have to mess with it every day as you use it for 7 days. So worth the wait and even the exchange rate. Bought about a years supply to make it worth the delivery cost and exchange.
  • Cleans extremely well, convenient, easy to use, no chemical flavour when put mouth guard in - it's minty.
  • Shipping to Canada takes longer than expected and very costly.

Great Cleaner for Mouth Guard
October 24, 2020
I have used this for one week and find the cleaner to be effective. My guard came with instructions to only clean with warm water, soap and a soft toothbrush so it turned yellow over time. I am hoping DentaSoak will keep the night guard fresher and take away some of the discoloration. It certainly feels better. So glad my new dental assistant told me to get a different cleaning product.
By Ginette W.
Good price, fast delivery, nicely packed, hard to find item which is top quality!!!
April 12, 2020
DantaSoak was highly recommended to me years ago by a dentist as a cleanser for my nightguard vs. the commonly bought similar items you find in stores. It is gentler than commonly available soaks and cleansers for similar items, cleans 100% with no residue at all. You simply put it in the cup they provide, soak and clean your item, rinse and you are good to go. I am completely dependent now up DenaSoak vs. anything else. It is worth the money as it is less harsh than others sold in stores. Also this seller was a good communicator, honest and professional, totally trustworthy. Thank you for being there!!!!

Keep Your Night Guard Healthy & Clean

I have used DentaSoak since I got my night guard a few years ago. After visiting my dad in the hospital I noticed his was in bad shape as he didn't care for it correctly. I ordered him a starter kit in hopes that he will now keep his night guard healthy and clean!

December 27, 2019
I had been using another company for my retainers and wasn't really impressed, plus there is a chance of an allergic reaction for some people and I'm super sensitive so I couldn't stand rinsing it to death to make sure there was no residue left. So I goggled products that didn't have the ingredient that I could get a reaction from and that's when I found dentasoak the only product available without a chance of an allergic reaction. The reviews where very helpful especially the review about keeping the retainers clean. Mine had become yellow no matter how mulched they where clean so I couldn't wait to see how this product should work. It is awesome the best cleaner on the market. I placed my old retainer in the mix just to see what would happen and when it came out almost completely clear I was floored. It was unbelievable that what I was using really wasn't cleaning my retainers. I am so happy about dentasoak that not only am I telling everyone but I'm trying to get my orthodontist to make it available for others. Thank you for your dedication to make a great product.

Good Persulfate-free alternate cleaner
June 9, 2019
I was looking for a cost-effective alternative to Retainer Brite tabs for cleaning my sleep appliance that was Persulfate-free. Using for a couple of weeks now and seems to be living up to claims. Do not have any reason to believe it's not a USA made product but wish it was clearly labeled as such. Mixing the solution only once a week is convenient. Leaving the device in for longer than the recommended 15 minutes results in a slight blue tint to the appliance.

High-Performing Cleaning Solution that Keeps your Retainers in Optimal Condition
March 7, 2018
My orthodontist performs an annual checkup of my retainers to make sure that they're still well-aligned and doing their job.

Each time he checks them, he exclaims, "They look like they were just made yesterday!" This is after 5 years of soaking my original retainers in DentaKit for 15 minutes each day. It's so easy to do because there is no scrubbing involved.

It leaves retainers with no buildup, no plaque, and no residue. Absolutely clean!

Great product, but confusing instructions
November 11, 2017
The product works very well, and I like that you can use the same solution mix for a week. There was one big issue for me, and it was just with the instructions. The only instructions you get are on the box. It explains how to make the solution, and that it will last a week. But there's one thing, no where does it say "leave containers in solution FOR 15 MINUTES AND TAKE OUT".

I was under the assumption that you would leave your retainers in there all day (since the solution lasts a week) So when I left my retainers in there for over an hour, they turned blue! They were ok, most of the blue came off when is washed them with water, and the rest came off a few days later. I went back online, and they had better instructions, and it does say that you shouldn't leave the retainers in for longer than 15 minutes.

But the actual product is great, it really cleans well, a lot of the white stuff that had built up on my retainers over the years is coming off (not at once but I can see the changes.) And the retainers just feel cleaner when I wear them at night now. Would recommend, just make sure you leave them in for 15 minutes and take them out.
Merchant Response:The instructions on our website say: "After soaking your retainer for 15 minutes, rinse it with cool water. The manufacturer advises that you do not soak your appliance more than the recommended 15 minutes."

Cleaned retainers; they don't look like new when dry but most of the caked on minerals came off.
Merchant Response:If your retainers have a lot of white plaque buildup, it usually takes 3 to 5 consecutive cleanings to get all of the buildup off. DentaSoak does an excellent job of this.

Not good for solder
April 8, 2017
Followed directions and time constraints exactly. Still stripped the solder from my Hawley retainer. Tried putting wax over the solder with mixed results. Stopped using.
Merchant Response:We're sorry to hear that you had this experience. We clearly state on the product's page that this product is not recommended for retainers with metal solder. We don't recommend soaking a retainer containing solder in ANY product. If your retainer contains solder, it needs to be cleaned by hand with a cleaner like OAP or Cleanse Freshen Go.
  • Did get rid of the white calcifications at least. But almost wrecked my retainer.
  • Not good for soldered retainers.

Cleans but messy!
January 20, 2017
I have been using the Denta Soak for two weeks now. It is impossible to place or remove the dental appliance without some dripping. I have a marble vanity top and discovered too late that the solution etches the finish of the marble! Be careful with drips and spills. If you have marble I wouldn't recommend this product at all.
Merchant Response:We do state, in the product description, that you need to be careful with the product on marble surfaces. We're sorry to hear that it caused a problem for you.
Convenient, but still have to manually clean retainer afterwards.
September 30, 2016
Been using this for 2 months. Still comes out with film on the retainers. I soak them for the 15 minutes and thoroughly rinse. I have to then wash them with hand soap/q tip to clean the film off and not all of it does come off. We clean them after each meal and use the soak at night so we do keep up on cleaning them daily. Make new soak every week. After reading the reviews I was hoping we'd get the results others have.
  • Convenient soak. Mix weekly, soak 15/day and rinse. Persulfate free.
  • Doesn't get the film off. Sill have to manually clean my daughter's retainers afterwards.
Seems to be good.
September 29, 2016
I've only had it for a couple of weeks so too soon to tell much but it seems to be working just fine. The case needs to be held over the sink while shaking as drips fly out and if you leave your retainer in more than 15 minutes it might turn a bit green which will leave after a few brushings.

It really does what it says it will do...the white film came off my invisalgn retainer beautifully after 4 soakings. Would recommend this product!
  • Easy to follow directions. Lasts one week
  • Don't shake to mix too hard, it will leak out. Rinse out sink well after disposing, may damage finish on drain ring.

I like how this product keeps my retainer clean and fresh. Very easy to use! I took off one star only because the case does not seal tightly and when you are shaking to mix it leaks. But that wouldn't stop me from reordering when the time comes.
