Retainer Tips

1. Your retainer should be worn at all times, except when eating, brushing your teeth, or taking part in any athletic activity.
2. To clean: scrub retainer with your toothbrush and toothpaste.
a. Do not wash in hot water
b. Clean over a sink with water, so if dropped, it won’t break.
3. Keep retainer away from animals, heated appliances, sun and cafeteria trays.
4. Do not chew gum with the upper/lower retainer in your mouth.
5. You will be charged for a replacement retainer if your original retainer is lost or broken due to carelessness. Use the retainer case to keep appliance in when not wearing it.
6. Please wear your retainer to each appointment.
