Retainer Instructions


  • Post orthodontic treatment, wear your retainer at all times (unless eating, brushing or flossing) until Dr. Reynolds instructs otherwise. Click here for a downloadable PDF of our retainer instructions. 
  • Clean your retainer thoroughly at least once a day with warm soap and water. 
  • When your retainer is not in your mouth, it should always be in its case. 
  • Retainers are breakable, so treat yours with care. If your retainer gets lost or broken, call us immediately. 
  • If you have any questions or concerns about your retainer, or you believe it needs adjusting, call us. Please do not try to adjust it yourself.
  • Always bring your retainer to your appointments.
  • Retainer replacements are available, but with proper care your retainers will last for years!
  • Keep retainers away from pets, hot water, inside hot vehicles, your pockets, the washing machine, and napkins. 
  • Remember, you will wear your retainer “nighttime for a lifetime”!
