RETAINERS

THE WEAR

Why should I wear my retainer?

You need to wear your retainer as recommended by Dr. Harfield in order to maintain the position of your straightened teeth after treatment.

 

How long should I wear my retainer for?

Every patient is unique and will need to wear their retainer for different lengths of time.

Typically, we recommend wearing your retainer close to 24 hours a day following the first 6 months of treatment.

After 6 months, you may only need to wear your retainer in the morning and evening or just at night.

THE CARE

  • Retainers require care and consideration when eating food.
  • Carry the retainer case with you, wherever you go.
  • Refrain from wrapping your retainer in tissue or napkins.
  • Remove retainers before: eating, brushing, flossing or any physical activities.
  • Remove the retainer properly as instructed by your orthodontist.
  • Brush your retainer when you are brushing your teeth to ensure that it stays clean.
