Your Retainers

Preserve your new smile!

What if I told you there was a magic way to stop aging. Would you use it, religiously?

Luckily, there is such a thing in the orthodontic world. They are your retainers.

 

When worn properly, and over the course of many years, they are your best defense against age-related changes in your teeth, your bite and your smile.

Your Orthodontist prescribes your retainer type and wear protocol based on your needs. Usually, it is every night for the first year. Depending on how well your teeth are holding, your orthodontists may decide to reduce the wear frequency in subsequent retainer check visits.
