These braces are often used to correct the bite, to move one or two teeth or to expand the jaws. These braces need to be worn 24 hours per day, removing only to clean and for sport. It is important that these braces are used when eating.
To clean the braces, use a liquid soap and warm water. Store the brace away from dogs (they love to chew them!), it is also important to store these retainers in a hard box when not in use to prevent unwanted breakages.
