Yes! If you want to keep your straight smile for the long run, it is important to wear your retainer if instructed by your  Orthodontist. This will probably be full-time at first, but can move to nighttime-only wear after your teeth adjust to their new positions.

Fixed retainers: These are thin metal wires permanently fixed at the back of your teeth to comfortably maintain your smile. Take extra care to keep this area clean to avoid plaque from building up around your retainer.

Removable retainers: Removable retainers are similar to Invisalign® clear aligners that can be removed for meals and brushing or flossing. They are completely transparent and discreet.

Make sure to wear your retainers as instructed by your Specialist Orthodontist.

Remove your retainers for meals, drinks or swimming.

When removing your retainers, put them back in the retainer case and do not wrap them inside a napkin. (You wouldn’t want to throw them out by accident!)

Keep your retainers away from high heat.

If you need to have your retainers replaced, please contact us right away.

If you stop wearing your retainer regularly, there is nothing to prevent those stretched ligaments from pulling your teeth back to their pre-treatment position. Your removable aligners have been designed to perfectly fit your teeth in their new position, so when you try to squeeze them over teeth that have moved, they are likely to feel a tad tight. If you leave it long enough they may not fit at all so it is recommended that you keep your retainer in every night to ensure this does not happen.

After having your braces removed you will be expected to wear your removable retainers every night. However, there will come a point when you only have to wear them a few times a week. You will have to continue doing this for the rest of your life if you want to maintain straight teeth.

A retainer should be kept clean by brushing it just like your teeth. The retainer will eventually have to be replaced for typical wear and tear. But if it is handled properly, retainers should last for at least 2 years if not even longer.

If you do not wear your retainer after having your braces removed the natural process of your teeth drifting will eventually take hold and will slowly but surely go back to their original positions.

The retainer itself does not damage teeth, otherwise no one would wear one. However, there is the chance of decay if you do not take care of the retainer or your teeth. Basically, you have to take more meticulous care of your teeth by paying attention to brushing and flossing, cleaning the retainer daily and not wearing it when you eat.
