This report presents a rare case of multiple Cl.VI carious lesions developed in a young female patient due to full-time wearing of an Essix retainer combined with poor oral hygiene and high acidic intake. The demineralization during orthodontic retention and the hygiene instructions, including the retainer cleaning protocol, are highlighted.
