After finishing an orthodontic treatment, your dentist will recommend that you wear a retainer so that the teeth don’t shift back to their original position.
- Usually, retainers are not worn 24/7, but only during night time.
- Some people may need to wear them full time for approximately 1 year during the first year.
- Others will need to wear these devices indefinitely, but only at night.
In any case, the most important thing is to be consistent wearing your retainer. Keep it near your toothbrush so you don’t forget to put it on at night.
