Orthodontic retainers are worn after your braces have been removed to keep them permanently straight. Normally, after your braces have been removed, we would recommend wearing them all the time for the initial first 3 months. Once the 3 months has passed, we would then recommend wearing your retainers overnight only and indefinitely. If you stop wearing your retainers then your teeth will move.
What can we do?
If you have lost, broken or damaged your retainers then we can make replacements within 48 hours. It is important that you have replacement retainers available as soon as possible to prevent any unwanted movement.
