Why Do We Recommend A Retainer?

Are you getting ready to end your journey wearing braces? Congratulations on completing treatment! There are few times more exciting than the day when you get your braces removed. The day that you can look in the mirror and see your beautiful, straight smile is what patients with braces dream of for the entire length of treatment. Not to quickly put a damper on your excitement, but your journey towards straight teeth is not yet over. Braces being removed is the end of what is considered the active period of treatment. You are now moving into the retention period, which involves the use of a retainer to hold the teeth in place.

Are you or a loved one planning to get braces in the near future? It can be overwhelming at first, determining which foods are safe to eat with braces and which foods should be avoided. Unfortunately, some of your favorite foods may be on the “do not eat” list, and for the safety of your braces and your treatment plan, we recommend holding off on eating those foods while you are wearing your braces. There are also foods that we suggest having on hand when you get your braces for the first time or the first few days after an adjustment when your teeth and gums may be a little tender.
