Retention After Treatment
You worked hard for your new smile so we’re dedicated to helping you keep your teeth in their proper position with retention once your treatment is done. Unfortunately, a huge percentage of our patients are being retreated years after they had braces. Chances are, it’s because they didn’t wear their retainers.
If you take the right steps there should never be a need for retreatment. Once the teeth are moved to their corrected positions, we believe retention is forever. Typically, we recommend wearing retainers full time (except to eat, brush and floss) for the first six months post-treatment. After that, retainers should be worn at night, every night – for as long as you want to maintain your beautiful smile.
