Understanding the Role of Retainers

Retainers are an essential component of your orthodontic aftercare. They serve the crucial purpose of controlling and preventing potential changes in tooth positioning. After braces or aligner treatment, retainers are employed to maintain your teeth in their correct positions. This is vital as it allows the surrounding gums, bone, and muscles to adapt to the new alignment of your teeth. Many of our patients will need to wear retainers following their treatment to safeguard and preserve their new, radiant smiles.

Caring for Your Retainer

Proper retainer care is essential to ensure the longevity of your orthodontic results:

Remember, your commitment to wearing and caring for your retainer is a crucial part of preserving your beautiful smile. Our team is here to support you every step of the way.

Follow Instructions

Wear your retainer as instructed by our team. Neglecting to do so could result in your teeth reverting to their previous positions.

Remove During Meals

Remember to take out your retainer while eating. When not in use, keep it in its designated case to prevent misplacement or breakage. Avoid wrapping it in a paper napkin, as this can lead to accidental disposal.

Regular Cleaning

Clean your retainer thoroughly at least once a day using a toothbrush and toothpaste. Use warm, but not hot, water. This practice removes plaque and prevents odours from developing.

Safe Storage

When your retainer isn't in your mouth, it should be securely stored in its case. Pets have a knack for being curious about retainers!

Handle with Care

Retainers are delicate, so treat yours gently. If your retainer is ever lost or damaged, contact us immediately for guidance.
