Do Retainers Need To Be Replaced?

Retainers are a great way to straighten your teeth, but keeping up with their maintenance is essential for your dental health. For one thing, retainers do not protect you from cavities, tooth decay, or gum disease, which makes it important to keep seeing the dentist recurrently to ensure your dental health is in order.

Additionally, dental retainers often need to be replaced even if your teeth are not pulled in their most optimal position yet.

How Can You Know if Your Retainers Need Replacing?

Look for the following signs to know if you might need new retainers:

You might need to change your retainers even if you don’t see any of these signs. If you visit your orthodontist recurrently, they can recommend a new pair if the current one has run its course, or they reassess your treatment plan.

Additionally, frequent appointments can also help you stay on top of your dental health needs, and spot any of these four signs before they create bigger problems with your tooth alignment.
