Retainer Instructions

"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter." - e.e. cummings

Retainer Instructions

  • Wear your retainers full time, until the doctor instructs otherwise.

  • Take your retainers out when eating ... and always put retainers in their case! (Most appliances are lost after they are wrapped in a napkin and mistaken for trash.)

  • Clean retainers thoroughly once a day by brushing with warm water. Brushing your retainer removes plaque bacteria, and helps eliminate odors. Efferdent(r) or other orthodontic appliance cleaners can be used, but are not a substitute for daily brushing.

  • Initially, you may find it difficult to speak. Practice speaking, reading, or singing out loud to get used to them faster.

  • Retainers are breakable, so treat them with care. If retainers are lost or broken call us immediately.

  • If you have any questions or concerns about your retainer, or your retainer does not feel like it fits properly, please call us. Do not try to adjust it yourself!

  • Always bring your retainer to your appointments.

  • Retainer replacement is expensive ... with proper care they will last!

  • Remove retainers when swimming.

  • Keep retainers away from hot water, hot car dashboards, and never boil a retainer because the heat will distort it and it will not fit.

  • Keep retainers out of pockets, bookbags, or purses unless they are in their cases so the wires do not bend or break.

  • Watch video here to learn how to clean your retainer with Retainer Brite.
