The Importance of Teeth Retainers
Your teeth have a memory and they will move back to where they were without a retainer. Your retainers are usually ready a day or two after the braces come off, and that is when we want to see you.There are many different types of retainers and our doctor will choose the retainers that are best for you. He will also direct you on how much to wear your retainer. Typically, you will be asked to wear your retainer full time for at least a month and then switch to nighttime wear. Our doctor will see you for periodic retainer checks and coach you on the frequency of retainer wear that is prescribed.
