Step 1: Brush retainer Using toothpaste, brush your retainer with your toothbrush or retainer brush in the morning and evening. Tip Soaking your retainer in mouthwash a few times a day will help kill off germs. Step 2: Remove to eat Always remove your retainer when you eat. Tip Keep a spare container in the kitchen and/or dining room so you always have a place to keep your retainer while you eat. Step 3: Soak in water Soak you retainer in cool water when you are not wearing it. Step 4: Don't bend wires Don't bend the wires or flip the retainer around in your mouth. Step 5: Keep in its case Keep your retainer in its case if you are transporting it somewhere and not wearing it. Step 6: Don't leave in heat Never leave your retainer near a source of heat--it could melt. Then it's back to the gooey stuff... Did You Know? That gooey stuff is actually rubber--once it's removed from your mouth, plaster is poured over it, creating a cast used to craft your lovely plastic retainer.
