Wearing Your Removable Appliance

  • Please wear your appliance at all times, even while sleeping, or as instructed by our office. Doing so will help reduce treatment time and will also ensure the best possible results from your orthodontic treatment.
  • Please be sure to bring your appliance to every orthodontic appointment.
  • Please clean your removable device both morning and night to remove dental plaque. You can clean the appliance with a toothbrush and toothpaste.
  • Please place your removable device in the provided case any time it is not being worn.
  • If you have pets, please do not place your removable device anywhere that your pets can reach them. Pets are attracted to saliva and would enjoy chewing on your appliance!
  • Please do not place your appliance in or on a napkin or tissue. Many appliances have accidentally been thrown out this way!
  • You may remove your appliance while participating in physical activities, but be sure to wear a mouthguard to protect your teeth, gums and lips.
