When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers (upper & lower), so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainers before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
Retainers are fragile and costly to replace. When not in your mouth, place them in the special case provided; please make sure you keep them in this case when not wearing them. To clean your retainers, brush them when you brush your teeth.
Your retainers should be worn at all times with the exception of eating and brushing your teeth. Your retainer should also be removed when participating in sports that require a mouthguard or while swimming. After 12 months of full-time wear, we may revise your retention treatment, allowing the retainer to strictly be worn at night.
