What should I do if my retainer breaks? 0
It’s important that you wear either a fixed bonded retainer or removable Essix or Hawley retainer immediately after your braces are removed.

As you should wear your retainer every day, if you break or lose a retainer you will need to make sure you contact your Orthodontist ASAP to have it repaired or a new appliance made.
