• Wear your appliance as instructed (most cases are fulltime removing only when eating or brushing!)
  • Always brush and/or rinse after eating and before placing your aligner
  • Keep your retainer clean:
    • Brush with soft bristle toothbrush and lukewarm soapy water
    • Use denture cleanser (i.e.: Efferdent) with lukewarm water
    • Soak with pure peroxide for 10 minutes weekly
  • Handle with care:
    • Keep away from pets ( they love to chew retainers)
    • Protect from heat (car dashboards, washing machines, hot water)
  • Remember:
    “When it’s not in your face, it’s in your case”
    Retainers and aligners are often lost in paper towels and napkins!!!
