It’s understandable that you would occasionally forget to wear your dental retainer. And while one night here or there shouldn’t cause too many problems for your orthodontic health, we don’t recommend getting in the habit of forgetting your dental retainer!
Until you get into the habit of putting your retainer in every night, it can be hard to remember every day. Below are a few tips to help you get into the habit of wearing your orthodontic retainer every night before bed:
Skipping your retainer too often can cause your teeth to shift back into their original position. This may make it necessary for you to undergo orthodontic treatment all over again! In order to keep your straight and beautiful smile for a lifetime, please make sure to wear your orthodontic retainer every night and practice good oral hygiene habits!
