Hey there, not when taking liquids he should rinse thoroughly but with solid food he should remove it every time. If it is unavoidable to remove the retainer then he should rinse with water and when possible remove the retainer and clean it. Whenever he removes the retainer, tell him to place it in water for life of the retainer.
