Advised for patients who are more concerned about aesthetics. Not advisable if there is no proper inter-digitation of teeth as the retainer may hamper final settling of teeth.
Maintenance: Soak in mixture containing equal amounts of hydrogen peroxide & water for 2 minutes and rinse with water every time before use.
Use soft / thin brush to remove soft debris present.
