Retainer & LTR Information

Congratulations on Your New Smile!

You did it! Your smile is looking fantastic thanks to your commitment to orthodontic treatment! Now that you’ve completed the active phase, it’s time to talk about how to maintain that stunning smile for a lifetime.
Why Wear Your Retainer?
● Maintain Alignment: Your retainer helps maintain the new position of your teeth,.Without wearing it, there’s a risk of teeth shifting back to their original positions over time.
● Jaw Health: Wearing your retainer can prevent jaw discomfort and keep your bite in harmony.
● Protect Your Smile Investment: Your orthodontic treatment was an investment in your smile. Wearing your retainer protects this investment by maintaining the results of your beautiful new smile!
How Often to Wear Your Retainer: Wearing your retainer consistently is key to maintaining your smile’s alignment. Here’s a general guide:
● Full-time Wear: We recommend wearing your retainer full-time (day and night) for the first 3 months after treatment.
● Nighttime Wear: As your teeth stabilize after 3 months, you may wear your retainer at night while you sleep.
Remember, consistency is key! Wear your retainer as directed to keep your smile looking its best for years to come.
How to Clean and Maintain Your Retainer:
● Remove Before Eating: Always take out your retainer before eating to prevent damage and to avoid food particles getting trapped.
● Clean Daily: Brush your retainer gently with a soft toothbrush and mild soap or denture cleaner. Avoid using hot water, as it can distort the retainer’s shape.
● Soak Regularly: Soak your retainer in a retainer cleaning solution or a mixture of equal parts water and vinegar for 15-30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
● Handle with Care: Avoid bending or twisting your retainer. When not in use, store it in its case to prevent loss or damage.

Remember: If your retainer ever feels tight or uncomfortable, contact us immediately. Proper care and regular wear will help ensure your smile stays healthy and beautiful for a lifetime!
