Pioneers retainer is a clear appliance that is used directly after orthodontic treatment if you have clear aligners or metal braces.
Unlike what it may look like after orthodontic treatment, you don’t just finish your treatment and remove your braces; you have to use a retainer to keep your teeth in their new position.
There are various types of retainers, but the most common now is the clear retainer, which you can put on all day and take off while sleeping. Following your dentist’s instructions is extremely important for how many hours you should wear your retainers to keep the braces results as long as possible.
Usually, most dentists recommend wearing your retainers as long as you want to keep your teeth straight. Your teeth have memory and will always try to return to their original position for various reasons, so it is recommended to keep using your retainers as long as possible to maintain your braces teeth results.
