YES! You MUST wear your retainers! Once we have worked together to achieve your beautiful, straight new smile, your orthodontic retainers will be there to keep things where they need to be. Fortunately, retainers are comfortable to wear and easy to maintain. Lower-bonded retainers and removable upper retainers are still the most popular and effective option. A newer and also great option is clear plastic retainers. Both types need to be worn as directed, and when lost or damaged, they should be replaced as soon as possible. It is also a good idea to bring them with you for your regular checkups so they can be cleaned and inspected.
