FAQ 3: How Long do I need to wear my retainers for after my braces come off?

CategoriesFAQs

Your braces move your teeth into their new positions, but your retainers are what keeps them in the right place!
Ideally, you’ll wear your retainers indefinitely, to keep your smile flawless. We recommend wearing your retainers nonstop after treatment, then switching to a bedtime-only schedule after the first 2-3 months.
After patients’ 2-year removal anniversary, we advise wearing retainers on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule.
