Orthodontic Retainers

Keep your teeth straight after treatment! We provide dental retainers and replacement retainers for our patients.

Wearing your retainer is imperative to maintaining your new smile. You should continue wearing your retainer for as long as you want straight teeth!

Wearing retainers as instructed is the key to maintaining the success of orthodontic treatment. Retainers keep your teeth in the correct position after the braces are removed. Immediately after braces are removed patients may be advised to wear their retainer full-time for the first six months. After this they should be worn while you sleep every night. Proper retainer use is imperative for keeping your brand new smile as nice as the day the braces came off. 

Learn more about caring for your retainer is on our general orthodontic care page.
