Orthodontic retainers are appliances made to hold teeth in place to prevent long term movement of teeth. As Dr. Elhady always says, retainers are forever.
The long term stability of your teeth depends on many factors including growth of the jaws, wisdom teeth, tongue posture, dental restorations just to name a few. As such, we recommend nightly retainer wear if you would like to keep the same result as when you finsihed orthodontic treatment.
Come see us and ask about the different types of retainers. Our Retainers for Life is a cost efficient way to replace your retainers as time goes on.
