Retention

This phase generally lasts at least 24 months and is absolutely crucial to the long-term success of your treatment - without retention, teeth will often move back to their original position, erasing all of your hard work! Retainers ensure that this does not happen and that you keep the smile you've earned.

 

Proper Retainer Hygiene

 It is very important to keep your retainer clean, always clean your retainer daily:

  • with hand soap and use a toothbrush or cotton swab
  • wear your retainer all the time except when eating or brushing
  • keep away from heat; hot water
  • never wrap it in a napkin, place it in your case when not using it
  • keep away from pets
