Retainers

So your braces are off, now what?


While the smile may look great, we’re not home free just yet! At this point treatment will move into the retention stage, which will last a minimum of 24 months. However, the final results will be based on how often you or your child wears a retainer and if the schedule is followed appropriately. Don’t throw away all of the hard work that’s already been done!

Remember, retainers are removable. You or your child must be very careful when handling them, as they are fragile and costly to replace if broken or lost!
