My brace has broken, what do I do?
Depending on the scale on which you have broken your brace. If just a bracket has broken off and is not causing you any discomfort this will be fine to leave until your next visit. If you are in any pain or unsure if it needs to be treated ring us.
How long do I wear my retainers for?
Every night for the first 12 months then if you want to reduce the number of nights this is your choice. However you are at risk of your teeth moving forwards and ruining your straighten teeth. The longer you wear the retainers the longer your teeth will remain straight.
What should I do if I lose my retainers?
If you lose your retainers make sure you have a good look for them. If you still cannot find them, book an appointment with us as soon as possible to get new retainers made. There is a cost for the making of these retainers.
