Forgetting My Retainer

Dear Highlights,
I always forget to put in my retainer at night. How can I remember?
Maddie, Oregon

You seem to know how important it is to wear your retainer so that your smile becomes healthier and even more beautiful. Here are a few suggestions:

• Stick a note on the bathroom mirror that reads: Remember retainer!

• Put a brightly colored sticker or rubber band on your toothbrush or tube of toothpaste.

• Put your retainer in the same spot every day after you clean it.

• Ask yourself, “Am I wearing my retainer?” when you say good night to your family.

Your parents, orthodontist, and friends may have more suggestions for you.
