So, you’ve finally said goodbye to braces. Congratulations, you made it! Your smile is radiant and you’re flashing your pearly whites at any person, place, or thing that glances your way! However, before you can truly celebrate your wonderful new smile, you must make sure to wear your retainers to keep your teeth looking perfect.

OrthoPros Tucson AZ Caring for your retainers

Protect Your Retainers When out of Your Mouth

“Using your retainer” means much more than having it close by when you go to sleep or wearing it the number of hours prescribed by your orthodontist. It means you must protect it also when out of your mouth! Once you leave the office the entire world has it’s eye on your retainers.

At OrthoPros we can’t stress enough the importance of protecting your retainers. Here are some tried and true tips to help keep your appliances safe. We have heard all the horror stories and very little surprises our team anymore. The safest place for retainers is where they’re designed to go; the mouth.

Why Wear Retainers?

By now you’re probably wondering why a retainer is needed if it’s such a hassle to protect? You’re given retainers to maintain your smile in its final position. Braces are used to move your teeth along a predetermined path with the wire. When finished, a retainer is needed to make sure your teeth don’t stray off the path.

If you have lost or damaged your retainer or retainers, contact our office immediately to schedule an appointment to replace them. Maintaining your smile for a lifetime depends on it!
