  • It varies from case to case. Sometimes the retainers have to be worn almost lifelong but in every case, for atleast 6 months you have to wear the retainer day and night. After that you can wear at night for next 1 year but you should follow the instruction given by your orthodontist as he is best to tell this as he has done the treatment and knows how much chances of replapse are there in your case. Retainers are of two types, removable and fixed. If you have problem with removable retainers then you can opt for fixed retainer which are fixed at back of teeth and are not visible and donot create any problem.
