Congratulations on completing your orthodontic journey with VV Orthodontics! Now that you have a beautiful smile, it is important to maintain it by following these essential retainer instructions:

Wear Your Retainer as Directed:

  • Dr. Saritha Chary-Reddy will provide specific instructions on when and how long to wear your retainer. Follow these instructions diligently to maintain your teeth’s new alignment. 

Keep Your Retainer Clean:

  • Brush your retainer daily with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water to remove bacteria and plaque.
  • Avoid using hot water or toothpaste, as they can damage the retainer.

Handle with Care:

  • When removing your retainer, use both hands and carefully detach it from your teeth to prevent damage.
  • Store your retainer in its case when not in use to avoid loss or breakage.

Regular Check-Ups:

  • Schedule regular check-ups with our orthodontist and team to ensure your retainer fits properly and is effectively maintaining your smile.

Maintain Oral Hygiene:

  • Continue practicing good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing your teeth regularly.
  • Your retainer is an additional tool in maintaining your smile’s alignment, but it is important to keep your teeth healthy too.

Avoid Harsh Chemicals:

  • Avoid exposing your retainer to harsh chemicals, such as mouthwash or alcohol-based cleaners, as they can damage the material.

Be Consistent:

  • Consistency is key to the success of your retainer treatment. Wearing it as directed will help prevent any unwanted shifting of your teeth.
