Do I Have To Wear My Retainer Forever?
Most people will need to wear a retainer full-time for around a year after having their teeth realigned through orthodontic treatment. However, your dentist will also recommend continued use of a retainer beyond this period.
- Teeth can shift throughout your life and this can be magnified for those who have orthodontic treatment.
- After the initial year of permanently wearing a retainer you should only need to wear it overnight thereafter.
- Try to make using your retainer a part of your regular bed time oral care routine.
