Simple Steps to a Clean Retainer

Following the end of your Invisalign or metal braces treatment near Annapolis, your orthodontist will fit you for a retainer. This plastic retainer is very important to use because it keeps your teeth in their new position. Since it is so important to your orthodontic health, you should be aware of proper ways to clean and care for your retainer. Watch the video for some simple tips.

If your orthodontist provides specific cleaning instructions, be sure to follow them. Whenever you are not wearing your retainer, keep it safe in a plastic container. Unless instructed otherwise, take your retainer out when eating or drinking anything other than water. Keep your retainer clean by brushing it with a soft toothbrush and retainer-safe toothpaste or a retainer-safe rinsing solution.
