Removable Appliances Care Instructions

removable appliances

It’s extremely important that you wear your appliance as directed so that your teeth don’t shift. If they break or get lost, call our office immediately.

Care Instructions

  • Your appliance is working when it’s in your mouth, so it’s important to wear them as directed.
  • Remove your appliance when you’re eating and brushing, and playing any sports.
  • Brush your teeth AND the appliance twice per day. You can use a small amount of toothpaste and your toothbrush to clean it.
  • You can purchase retainer cleaning crystals in the toothbrush aisle of your grocery store. Soaking your appliance once per week will keep it fresh and clean.
  • Always keep it in your case. Otherwise, appliances are often lost, broken or even eaten by pets.
