When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.

A minor amount of wear (about two nights a week) should be continued even after the active retention phase is over to ensure the alignment is maintained. Regardless of the orthodontic treatment, teeth will shift throughout one’s lifetime and maintaining your orthodontic result will require continued minor retainer wear.
