Retainer Instructions

retainer-instructionsBy following these retainer care guidelines, your retainer can last for years.

  • Until our office instructs you otherwise, please wear your retainers at all times.
  • Remove your retainer when you are eating.
  • When not wearing your retainer, always put it in its case. If you wrap it in a napkin, it is likely to be accidentally thrown away!
  • Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
  • If you are having trouble speaking while wearing your retainer, just practice! Read aloud, talk on the phone or sing along to the radio to get used to your retainers!
  • Be careful with your retainers because they can break easily. Call us if you accidentally break one of them.
  • Please make an appointment if you think your retainer needs to be adjusted. Never do it yourself.
  • Always bring your retainers with you to your follow-up appointments.
  • Please remove your retainer if you are swimming.
  • Do not put your retainer in hot or boiling water to clean it. It can melt! Also keep retainers away from hot car dashboards and out of the washing machine.
