  • Retainers are given after the braces treatment to prevent teeth from moving back to their normal position. Initially retainers are to be worn full time and can be removed during eating and teeth brushing only but later on after some time, you have to wear them at night only. Yes you can wear your transparent retainers while sleeping. Make sure to keep your retainers clean to avoid any calculus deposits on the retainers and further any secondary infections. Brush your retainers with tooth paste and cold water every time you brush your teeth. Keep it away from hot water and heat. Once a week soak your retainers in cold water and efferdent and handle them with care.
