Retainers

Included in your treatment fee are two types of retainers - one clear plastic set and one traditional wire set.

  • Wear retainers full time as instructed.
  • When first wearing retainers, you may find it difficult to speak. It will get easier with practice.
  • Take retainers out to eat.
  • When not wearing retainers, ALWAYS put them in their case so they don't get lost or broken.
  • Clean retainers daily with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Retainer Brite can be used to elliminate odors.
  • Don't put retainers in hot water, on hot car dashboards, the dishwasher, pockets, backpacks or napkins.
  • Keep retainers away from pets - they love to chew them!
  • Remove retainers when swimming or playing contact sports.
  • If a retainer is lost, broken or needs adjustment, call us during business hours. Don't try to adjust them yourself!
  • ALWAYS BRING RETAINERS TO APPOINTMENTS
  • Retainer replacement is expensive. Take care of them.

REMEMBER, teeth will move if you don't wear your retainers!
