RETAINERS

THE WEAR

Why do I need to wear my retainer?

You should wear your retainer as recommended to maintain the position of your straightened teeth after orthodontic treatment.

 

How long should I wear my retainer?

Every patient is different and will require to wear their retainer for varying lengths of time.

Typically, we recommend wearing your retainer close to 24 hours a day after 6 months of treatment.

After 6 months, you may only need to wear your retainer in the morning and evening or during the night.

THE CARE

  • Retainers require care and consideration when eating food.
  • Carry the retainer case wherever you go
  • Do not wrap your retainer in tissue or napkins
  • Remove retainers before: eating, brushing, flossing, physical activities
  • Remove the retainer properly as instructed by your orthodontist.
  • Brush your retainer when you brush your teeth to ensure it stays clean
