At the end of your course of teeth straightening treatment, it is important to follow some simple after care instructions to ensure you enjoy your new smile for life!


Retainers MUST be checked regularly by the orthodontist. You are reminded to bring your retainer/s to any appointments. Please do call us immediately if the appliance has been lost or damaged. Please remember that teeth can begin to shift in position within a few days without retainers.

What to do:
You need to contact the practice as soon as possible to have a new retainer made when you will be advised of a replacement cost. We will need to take new scans and/or impressions and the retainers will be ready for collection approximately one week afterwards.


You will need to purchase a retainer case for protection and Retainer Brite tablets for cleaning the retainers four times a week.
