I Damaged My Teeth As A Child. I Am Set To Wear A Bonded Retainer But I Worry About Keeping It Clean. What Is Your Opinion On This?

Hello Dr Moore. I have a six months smile brace on at the moment that I have been told will hopefully be removed in a months time. I am also having whitening and a couple of crowns, one a replacement on my front tooth the other to cover a dead tooth. I damaged my teeth as a child falling down stairs. I have been told that I will be given a permanent fixed wire retainer on the back of my teeth for life, but I am worried that not only will this affect my bite when I eat and I also worry about keeping it clean, what are your opinions on this? Thank you for your time. 
Hello. At my practice we normally don’t find patients are worried about bonded retainers but if you’d prefer you could wear a night time removable retainer instead. The best thing to do is to discuss this through with your dentist and see if they can allay any of your concerns. You can also research similar cases to your own through the internet and see how they coped. I hope this helps you. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
