Post-braces Treatment and the Importance of Retainers

The major remodeling of your teeth happens in the braces phase. You are now entering the retention stage. Retainers are critical to holding your teeth in position until the bones and muscles stabilize. Wearing your retainer as instructed will ensure your teeth do not move back into the pre-braces position.

Your retainers are custom-made for your bite. You should wear your retainers around-the-clock and only remove them to brush your teeth or eat. Drs. Bovenizer and Baker will check your progress with virtual appointments and let you know when to move into wearing the retainers only at night. 

You should also clean your retainers with a toothbrush and keep them dry in their case when you are not wearing them. Ask us about our new Retainer Guarantee program!  For an upfront fee and small copay you can get retainers whenever you would like for 10 years!
