Appliance instructions: Retainer

Congratulations. Your teeth are now straight.

The next part of your treatment is as important as the treatment you have just completed. Although your teeth look nice now it will take at least 6 months to ensure that they do not start to go crooked again.

The retainer(s) MUST be worn EVERY NIGHT in bed.

Clean only in COLD WATER. You can use your toothbrush and toothpaste.

When you are not wearing the retainer(s) keep it somewhere safe. retainer boxes are available to buy at the reception desk).

If you lose your retainer(s) there is a charge under the National Health Service regulations of approximately £40.00 per retainer to replace them.

Also please note

If the retainer(s) does not fit because you have not worn it and your teeth have moved you will also have to pay for a replacement.

Please make an appointment in three months time and bring your retainer with you.

We recommend the use of an interspace brush in addition to your normal toothbrush The interspace brush can prevent the build-up of plaque and food particles in areas a normal toothbrush cannot reach. Particular attention should be paid to the areas between the gums and the brackets.
