Orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners will create a beautiful smile, but wearing retainers afterwards is what maintains and protects the smile into the future.
Retainers are key to maintaining the success of orthodontic treatment over the long term. In fact, wearing retainers is equally as important as the orthodontic treatment itself!
A retainer is designed to keep the teeth where the previous braces/aligner treatment moved them. To properly maintain the results your investment deserves it must be worn according to the guidelines set by your orthodontist.
