The active phase of your orthodontic treatment is considered complete when all of your teeth have been moved into their ideal positions and your bite pattern is functionally sound. Once you have worked hard to achieve the healthy smile that you desire, you’ll need to make a firm commitment to keeping it that way – you’ll need to wear a retainer.
We will provide you with a custom-fitted appliance that will work to maintain the position of your teeth for the rest of your life. However, it will only be effective if it is worn as directed and cared for properly.
A retainer is the only way to prevent your teeth from shifting and drifting. If you have additional questions about using this appliance, please contact us today.
