Your first set of retainers and one year of retainer checks are complimentary at Hyman Orthodontics!
Congratulations on your beautiful smile!
We are looking forward to working with you during this final and very important phase f your orthodontic treatment. Please remember that your cooperation with our instructions and your ongoing visits with us are the utmost importance so that we can maintain your beautiful smile.
Here are the instructions that will keep you smiling!
Wear your appliance 24 hours a day until otherwise instructed. This is very important. You should remove it only to brush your teeth and your appliance. (Appliances get lost or broken when they are left on lunch trays, wrapped in paper napkins, stuffed in your pocket, etc.) Replacement of a lost or broken retainer will be an additional expense to you.
Please do not put your appliance in hot water or leave it in a hot car. The acrylic will distort.
Please do not chew anything sticky like gum, caramels, etc. They will stick to the acrylic.
Please do not leave your appliance where it will be stepped on or chewed on by a dog or cat.
to remove: Pull on the side clasps. Do not pull on the front wire.
To insert: make sure the front wire is over your front teeth, then push the sides to make sure it is in place.
Please wear your retainer for each office visit.
Use a denture brush to brush your appliances with toothpaste & rinse with cool water. Also: soak appliances 2-3 times a month in 1 part vinegar to 1 part water & brush your appliances with baking soda and water to keep them fresh.
It is very important that you follow these instructions so that we can maintain your beautiful smile.
Last but not least – THANK YOU for being our patient!
