Why Do I Have to Wear a Retainer?

Whether you’ve used traditional braces or invisible aligners, after any orthodontic treatment that involves moving your teeth, you will need to wear a retainer to maintain your smile. For SmileDirectClub customers, you’ll wear your clear retainer all day and night, except when eating and drinking – just like your aligners. After 2 weeks, you can switch to wearing it only at night.

Why do I have to continue to wear a retainer?

Even after invisible aligners straighten your teeth, we recommend you wear your retainers to preserve your beautiful new grin. As we get older, our teeth are constantly moving, slowly shifting forward and inward. By continuing to wear your retainer at night, you can prevent this movement and keep your smile straight.

Your SmileDirectClub invisible retainers

At SmileDirectClub, we make it easy to maintain your smile with custom invisible retainers designed just for you. You’ll purchase your set of retainers about 6 weeks before the end of your smile plan to protect the investment you’ve made in your teeth.
