Retainers are custom-made devices which are intended to be worn so teeth don’t shift position after braces are removed. What are some of the reasons why this device should be worn as recommended?
- Your teeth may otherwise shift and require further attention.
- Shifting teeth can lead to other orthodontic problems.
- Retainers are generally comfortable and easy to wear.
“The vast majority of people who receive orthodontic treatment will need to wear a retainer after their teeth are straightened.”
Check out why it is important to follow the instructions of your dentist:
