San Juan Capistrano Retainers

Just like your child’s teeth, their retainers are required to be thoroughly cleaned with toothpaste. They will have to brush it gently and take extra precautions when cleaning around the wires.

For lower fixed retainers San Juan Capistrano, They will also need to be extra careful when cleaning the wire. Your child will also have to clean their teeth around the area of their retainer for a bit longer as food is easily trapped there which will cause decay and plaque build-up.

Some other pertinent information your child will have to keep in mind to ensure their retainer is safe are:

  • Have them to stop moving their retainer with their tongue as damage to their teeth can happen.
  • Whenever they are not using it, they should be placed in a plastic case to keep them safe.
  • Make sure to remind them to not wrap their retainer around a napkin as someone can easily mistake them for trash.
  • Ensure they are never placed in back pockets as they can be easily destroyed by sitting on them.


★★★★★ In my opinion, Teddy Bear Dental is one of the best Dentist Practices in San Juan Capistrano. Dr. Teddy Kim and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Kim.

★★★★★ I came to Teddy Bear Dental fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Kim was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
