Congratulations on finishing your Invisalign treatment! Here are some tips for maintaining your beautiful, healthy new smile!
- Prior to your retainers being made, continue to wear your last tray. It’s ok to wear this even after your buttons have been removed—the tray should still fit.
- Retainers should be worn 22 out of 24 hours per day for at least 1 month after treatment is complete. You can then begin to slowly decrease the amount of time that you are wearing them. 3 months after treatment is complete, you can begin wearing the retainers only at night.
- Continue wearing the retainers for as long as you want your teeth to be maintained in their current position! If you do not continue to wear them, your teeth will shift back.
- Retainers can be worn for a full year before needing replacement. If it starts to feel loose before then, let us know and a new one can be made.
