What Is Retention?
The retention phase begins when braces are removed and involves wearing a retainer or positioner to help keep teeth in their corrected position.
How long does the retention phase last?
Retention must be looked at as a lifelong commitment. Periodic checkups that monitor teeth position and the fit of your retainer are required.
Teeth Movement - What Is Normal?
Once your braces are removed, your teeth will adapt to life without braces and minimal movement of your teeth is normal and natural. Hence, retention is a lifelong commitment.
All of our patients receive individualized education regarding the importance of retention.
