Maintain a Beautiful Smile... It's Simple.

  • Optimize Retention
  • Minor Relapse Correction

Munchies® Maintain devices have been designed to optimize the seating of clear retainers after your patients have completed orthodontic treatment. Optimal fitting of clear retainers not only maintains the post-treatment goals but also aids in providing remediation of minor relapse.

As clear retainers are generally 30% thicker and more rigid than aligners, intimate seating of the retainers can be more challenging. Munchies® Maintain are larger and more robust than regular Munchies® and are specifically designed to provide adequate force systems to move clear retainers.

Maintaining Post-Treatment Position
As a daily regimen for maintaining the post-treatment position, simply instruct your patients to insert their clear retainers and put their top teeth into the larger groove on the Munchies® Maintain device and bite their bottom teeth against it, and then instruct them to put their bottom teeth into the smaller groove and bite their top teeth against it. They should do this for about 20-30 seconds upper and lower. 

Next instruct your patients to bite down on the non-grooved section of the Munchies® Maintain device on their back teeth for 20-30 seconds, on both sides. 

Patients will note that their retainers fit more intimately within 60 seconds. 

Minor Relapse Correction
Many Patients are inconsistent with their use of their retainers and minor relapse is a common sequela. If relapse is detected early enough and adequate space is available, the aberrant teeth can be moved back into the correct position with the use of clear retainers and Munchies® Maintain device.

The patients contact points, adjacent to the relapse site, should be checked carefully to ensure that no collisions have occurred. Relief of these areas need to be provided.

Instruct your patients to wear their clear retainers as they would their aligners, for 22 hours per day and use Munchies® Maintain each time the retainers are inserted. The rigidity of the retainers and optimization of the fit with the Munchies® Maintain should allow the teeth to move back towards their post-treatment position. 

Patients should maintain this regimen until the teeth have moved back into their post-treatment position. Regular checks by the health care provider should be provided and clear retainers replaced within 2 years.

Each Munchies® Maintain device has an average life span of 1-2 weeks if used correctly.

The product has been designed to be robust for this period and to remain visco-elastic and deliver the correct forces if not used excessively. Biting too hard or excessively will result in premature tearing of the Munchies®.
