Removable Retainers


These retainers can be taken out. They are clear plastic shields that cover all of the teeth in the arch. Retainers are expensive and delicate. In order to look after your retainers you must ensure they are kept clean and safe.


When you are not wearing your retainers always keep them in your box provided to prevent any accidental damage.

Retainers should be cleaned at least once a day by brushing with a toothbrush and rinsing under cold water, do not use toothpaste as this is too abrasive. A retainer disinfectant is available from reception and should be used occasionally.

“Having had a number of untrustworthy dentists, I went to Dr F Cambell-Barr who not only gave excellent advice and treatment, but made me feel at ease throughout. Service was excellent and easy to make follow-up appts even now 7 years after having braces and my teeth are just as perfectly straight as they were in 2009”!
