Why You Need to Wear Retainers After Your Braces Are Removed

Share:

If you are scheduled to have your braces removed, you may be relieved that the brackets and wires are finally coming off! But this isn’t exactly the end of your orthodontic treatment.

Wearing retainers after braces is a very important phase of your treatment. We at Windermere Orthodontics in Suwanee and Cumming, offer top quality removable and fixed retainers based on our patients’ individual needs and preferences.

About Removable and Fixed Retainers

Once your braces have been removed or you have completed aligner treatment (Invisalign), your teeth will slowly become more stable. Over time, the teeth may still relapse into their original position. This is why retainers are recommended long term to minimize movement of the teeth long term.

Your orthodontist will discuss these two options and recommend the form of retention that  is best suited for your specific case.  You will also be provided detailed instructions on how to care for your retainers.

For further information about our retainer options or if you would like to book an appointment at Windermere Orthodontics, don’t hesitate to reach out to us through this form. You can also call us directly for more information.
