Retainer Instructions


  • Wear your retainers as instructed by Dr. Legler and Dr. Gutierrez. They will give you instructions when you pick it up. For most kids and teens this is after school and all night.
  • Remove your retainer for meals and sports and place it in the case.
  • Keep your retainer clean.  Brush both sides twice a day.
  • If you drop your retainer and want to sterilize, soak it in diluted bleach (1 part bleach, 2 parts water) for 1 hour. No boiling water, will distort and not fit.
  • Keep your retainer away or out of reach of pets.
  • If your retainer is lost or doesn't fit, call us immediately.
  • Always bring your retainer to your appointments so we can adjust it.
  • All retainers are made in our lab in our Vero Beach office.
  • Remember:  If it's not on your face, it's in the case!
