Do I need to wear my retainer for life?

After you wear braces, your teeth can continue to move throughout your lifetime – unless you wear a retainer every night. Dentists now advise that a retainer should be worn for the rest of your life if you want to keep your teeth nice and straight.

Key takeaways:

– Retainers tend to be removeable so there is great temptation to quit using it.

– Not all of patients with braces are aware that the retain is important.

– Wear your retainer exactly as your dentist advices — or you may need braces again.

– If you lose your retainer, make sure you see your orthodontist for a replacement.

“It can come as a shock that it may be necessary to wear retainers for life.”
