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.
