What Happens If My Retainer Breaks ?

If your retainer breaks, you can call our office to schedule an appointment. You will have the opportunity to discuss your options and determine what is best for you. In some cases, we can repair it in the office. Many times, we will need to make another one for you.

In either case, it is important that you follow the instructions on how to care for your retainer after it has been replaced by us. If there was a lot of damage to your original retainer (such as chipped or cracked pieces), then it may be necessary for us to provide you with a new type of retainer altogether.

If the broken piece(s) cannot be repaired or replaced in-office, we may need to order a new one for you through our lab since some insurance companies cover outside labs or materials associated with dental work such as this one.
