How long do I need to wear the retainer for?

You’ll need to wear your retainers for the 6 week passive healing phase of your Candid treatment, and then for 8 hours per night indefinitely.

  • For the first two weeks after active treatment, wear your retainers for 22 hours a day.

  • For the third and fourth weeks, wear your retainers for 18 hours per day.

  • For the fifth and sixth weeks, wear them for 12–14 hours per day.

Make sure you keep wearing them for 8 hours at night indefinitely, because if you don’t, your teeth will start to shift back toward their original position.
