Be sure to follow these instructions carefully, to ensure that your retainers and expanders are as effective as possible!
You should wear your expander full time. This means all day long, including during meals, and while you're asleep.
Remove your expander only to clean it, which you should ideally do each time you brush your teeth.
Brush your expander at least 2 times a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste and warm tap water.
Turn your expansion screws as instructed by your orthodontist.
To do so, insert the key into the hole and turn toward the arrow.
If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment at our office, stop turning the expander until you are able to make it back in.
