Everyone forgets to wear their retainer occasionally. It’s unlikely that one night without it will cause too many problems, but it’s still not something we’d recommend doing!
We know that, until you get in the habit of wearing your retainer every night, it can be difficult to remember all the time. Below are a few tips from our office to help you remember your retainer every night:
If you skip wearing your retainer too many times, your teeth can shift back to their original place. This can sometimes mean you might need to wear braces all over again, and we know that’s no one’s goal! If you need more motivation, look up stories of people online who needed braces for a second time. This might scare you into remembering!
