Retainers and Your Smile
Retainers can keep your new smile in place. When the braces come off, we want to ensure you retain that perfect smile—your final orthodontic result depends on it! Over the past months, your teeth have moved a considerable distance. Retainers are carefully designed to hold your teeth in their new positions until they are stable. Active retention lasts at least two years, with indefinite nighttime retention ideal. Retention is an essential part of your treatment!
We employ several different types to ensure your perfect smile lasts a lifetime. We will discuss with you which will work best for our goals and your needs.
Call our office if you have any questions about retaining your new smile.
