When your retainers are not in your mouth, always put them in their case. Most retainers are lost at school during lunch or at restaurants. You may also be surprised to learn that pets like to chew on them!
NEVER WRAP YOUR RETAINER IN A NAPKIN !!!
Clean retainers thoroughly once a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste using cold water. Brushing retainers removes the plaque, and eliminates odors. Efferdent or other orthodontic appliance cleaners can be used, but do not take the place of brushing.
Keep retainers away from hot water, hot car dashboards, the washing machine and keep them out of your pockets.
