Does my retainer fit properly?
I have a removable upper retainer. How do I know that my retainer fits properly?
Your retainer should fit snugly without rocking back and forth when you push on it with your fingers from side to side. You can have your dentist or your orthodontist check the fit when you visit their offices.
