retainers are appliances usually given after a orthodontic (braces) treatment, to hold the teeth in the newly moved position.  if you are not wearing the retainers, the forces of tongue or lips might push the teeth back to its previous position.

As mentioned by fellow colleagues, they are used to keep teeth in their new acquired position by the braces treatment, so that they settle into this position for long term functional benefits. Their wear can be from continuous initially to few hours per day later on depending on how severe the case was to begin with.
