For Lost or Broken Dental Retainers

Sometimes, as hard as you try to be responsible, you (or your child) lose or break your orthodontic retainer. Teeth are dynamic, so if you don't wear a properly fitting retainer, your teeth will shift. That's why it's important to replace or repair your dental retainer if it's lost or broken.

Replacing a retainer can be quite expensive -- as much as $300 or more! For that reason, some people don't replace a lost retainer immediately. The products in this category can temporarily help you with this problem. Remember, you (or your parents) spent a lot of money on your orthodontic treatment -- get your real retainer replaced as soon as you can!
