Night time retainer
Congratulations on completing your orthodontic treatment! Now that your braces have been removed and your teeth are beautifully aligned, it’s essential to maintain your new smile. Orthodontic relapse is common in which teeth try to return to their original position. Follow these instructions to ensure the longevity of your results:
Initial Wear:
Wear your removable retainer FULL TIME for the first 6 WEEKS. This allows your teeth to settle into their new position.
Nighttime Wear:
After the initial 6 weeks, you can reduce wear to nighttime only.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Remove your retainer for eating, drinking hot beverages, and brushing your teeth.
  • Store your retainer in it’s case when not in use. Keep it away from hot surfaces and hot water.
  • Use a separate toothbrush to gently clean the inside surface of your retainer with cold water. Avoid using toothpaste as it may damage the retainer. Soap can be used in the morning for thorough cleaning.

NEVER use hot or boiling water, as it can distort the retainer.

Cleaning: Use Retainer Brite cleaning solution once a week:

    • Place 1 tablet in a glass of water. It will fizz and turn the water blue. Submerge the retainer in this solution.
    • After about 20 minutes, remove the retainer when the solution turns clear. Rinse it thoroughly with cold water before use.
 Adjustment Period:
Initially, you may find it difficult to speak with the retainer. Practice speaking, reading, or singing aloud to adapt faster.


Remove retainers when swimming or playing contact sports. They are not substitutes for gum shields or sports guards.

3D Models:

Keep your 3D models in a safe place. They can be used to create accurate replacement retainers.

If you lose or break your retainer, contact us immediately.

Bring your retainers to retainer check appointments to ensure proper fit.

Keep retainers away from pets, especially dogs, as they may chew them.

Optional Whitening Tray:

You may use your retainer as a whitening tray. If you require a lower whitening tray or whitening gel, let us know.

  • Single retainer: €150
  • Two retainers: €250

By following these instructions, you’ll maintain your beautiful smile for years to come. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact our clinic.
