Caring for your Retainers
This video gives you information on wearing retainers and how to care for them including advice on cleaning and what you should do if your retainers get damaged.
Once the active phase of your treatment has been finished, it will be necessary to wear a retaining brace. Retainers are designed to keep your teeth straight and can either be removed or fixed to the teeth. Now that your teeth are straight, if you do not wear your retainer your teeth are likely to drift towards their original positions. If this happens it can be corrected by wearing braces again which will be costly.
