Retainer Instructions

  • retainersWear your retainers every night while you sleep.
  • When retainers are not in your mouth they should ALWAYS be in a retainer case.
  • Clean retainers thoroughly once a day with a toothbrush . Use warm but not hot water. Brushing retainers removes the plaque, and eliminates odors.  Soak retainers in denture cleaner once a week to remove plaque and mineral deposits.  Example:  Efferdent
  • Keep you retainers away from PETS!  It is an expensive chew toy.
  • Bring your retainers to each appointment.
  • Your new type of retainer has an additional advantage of preventing damage to your teeth from night grinding.
