You have officiall completed your orthodontic treatment and are now using your Vivera Retainer to ensure long term retention. Here are a few things you should know:

Care to Ensure Success + Prevent Relapse

STEP #1​

  • Wear the retainers ALL night

  • Take them out in the morning and soak in polident cleaner

  • At 12:00 pm (lunch) put your retainers back in and wear them for the remainder of the day and night

  • Continue this routine for 4 weeks

STEP #2

  • Wear the retainers ALL night

  • Take them out in the morning and soak in polident cleaner

  • At 3:00 pm put your retainers back in and wear them for the remainder of the day and night

  • Continue this routine for 4 weeks

STEP #3

  • Wear the retainers ALL night

  • Take them out in the morning and soak in polident cleaner

  • At 6:00 pm put your retainers back in and wear them for the remainder of the day and night

  • Continue this routine for 4 weeks

**AT ANY POINT IN THIS PROCESS, IF THE RETAINER FEELS TIGHT WHEN YOU PUT IT IN, GO BACK AND START THE PREVIOUS STEP

STEP #4

  • You can now wear your retainers for nighttime only going forward

  • You should wear your retainers every night, for as LONG AS YOU DON'T WANT YOUR TEETH TO MOVE - which is typically forever

Important To-Dos

  • Brush and floss your teeth before use. Trapping debris and plaque under the retainers is unhealthy for your teeth and gums

  • If you ever lose all of your retainers, this is a dental EMERGENCY! Please contact our office so that we can see you and order new retainers before your teeth move.

  • Keep them out of reach of pets. Keep them in a safe place where you will not lose them
