Day-Vac Retainer

Girl with bracesThe removable retainer you have been given is called a Day-Vac retainer. It is designed as an invisible retainer. It is delicate and must be handled with care. Your Day-Vac retainer has been specially produced from models of your teeth. Place and remove it with care. When you remove the appliance, always start in the back, on one side only, and slowly peel the appliance off your teeth from one side to the other. Never flex the material in the middle by pulling the appliance off your teeth from both sides at the same time.

Your Day-Vac retainer must be worn four hours a day. Remove it for eating and brushing your teeth. If you also wear other retainers, the doctor will tell you when you should wear those.

Keep your Day-Vac retainer in its storage box when not wearing to protect it from breakage and to prevent loss.

Rinse your Day-Vac or brush it with a toothbrush. Do not use toothpaste or mouthwash on this retainer. This will cause cracking and scratching of the plastic.

There will be a fee for the replacement of the retainer.
