Wearing retainers is one of the most important phases of your orthodontic treatment. Once braces are removed, the teeth have a tendency to want to return to their original position. To prevent this from occurring, retainers must be worn as directed.
  • Retainers should be worn full-time.
  • When eating, take your retainers out and always place your retainers in their case.
  • Clean retainers thoroughly once a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Brushing retainers removes the plaque, and eliminates odors.
  • Keep retainers away from hot water or any hot environment.
  • Treat your retainers with care. If retainers are lost or broken, call us immediately.
  • Replacing your retainers is expensive, with proper care, they will last for years.
  • Call us if you have any questions or concerns about your retainers.
  • Always bring your retainers to your appointments.
