When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Long-term intermittent nighttime retainer wear is recommended to prevent lower front teeth irregularity which often occurs due to maturation or changes due to the natural aging process.
Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainer wear, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
