A Clear Retainer (รี เท น เนอ ร์ ใส, which is the term in Thai) is a type of retainer made of clear plastic. Place the crown on the teeth to lock the position, so they are aligned beautifully, as in new braces, thus not obstructing speech. Able to pronounce usually without interruption. It is also easy to put on and take off. Easy to clean, no complicated steps. We need to keep washing our retainers properly according to the instructions.
For teeth that are always beautifully aligned, we should always wear them as the dentist recommends. Because it is a retainer you can remove at any time, preservation is essential. We may have to be careful about taking off that must have a box for inserting. For good hygiene to prevent forgetting or loss during removal, as well. For the first year, you should wear the clear retainers day and night, removing them only to eat and brush your teeth. After that, you can only wear the retainers at night when sleeping.
They’re Comfortable And Affordable
For a precise fit, clear retainers are smooth and custom-molded. They are really comfy and glide over your teeth. While all types of retainers are acceptable after acclimating, many patients feel that wearing a clear retainer is the easiest to adjust to.

Understanding How To Effectively Clean Clear Retainers.
As you wear retainers, spit and plaque accumulate on the plastic. Not only will they seem clouded and no longer be virtually undetectable, but they will also begin to smell. Plaque is also composed of bacteria. Every time you put your unclean clear retainers in your mouth, you introduce more bacteria into your mouth and allow plaque to accumulate on teeth’s surface.
If you’re only wearing it at night, wash them once a day.
Cleaning clear retainers is as simple as brushing them with a soft-bristled toothbrush and then rinsing them with lukewarm water. You can also use mild dish detergent. We do not advocate using toothpaste because it is abrasive and can produce scratches on the plastic.
