How Do Retainers Work?

When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 12 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your compliance, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.


In addition to the above retainers, we also use the Invisalign type retainers. These retainers are form fitted to your teeth and are nearly invisible. Ask your orthodontist what retainer he recommends for you.
