The longer they remain in place the greater the guarantee that your teeth will remain straight. > You must note and memorise the position of the thin wire behind the teeth and the special cement used to attach this wire to each tooth. > Check the wires with a small mouth mirror every morning. > Brush the back of your teeth and over the wires thoroughly 2-3 times a day, especially after eating sweet foods. TO KEEP YOU SMILING FOREVER! > Sticky sweets and hard foods can break the wire or its attachments, so be careful! > If the wire breaks or an attachment becomes loose, telephone this clinic for an immediate appointment to have it checked. Ensure you wear your removable retainers to keep the teeth in position until your appointment. > When wearing a Bonded retainer you need only wear your removable retainers at night. > There is an additional cost for replacement or repair of this retainer.
