My removable retainer feels loose

Removable retainers get loose with time as they are clipped in and out every day. For this reason, you should try not to fiddle with your retainer. Also, avoid clicking the retainer in and out of your mouth with your tongue. Always remove the retainer as you have been shown, using two hands.

Even a loose retainer can be worn reasonably well. Therefore, if you are able to, you should continue to wear it. Contact the practice if you are unsure.

If you feel your retainer is excessively loose and cannot be worn, contact the practice for an earlier appointment.
