It’s not uncommon for people to go through orthodontic treatment twice in their lifetime due to lack of retainer wear. Once retainers are not worn for as little as one week, the teeth can begin to shift tremendously. Some people even notice their teeth shifting after only one day of not wearing their retainers! Although everyone’s teeth shift at different times, one thing remains the same with all people. If retainers are not worn after orthodontic treatment, teeth will begin shifting back to their original position.
There are many reasons why people do not wear their retainers after orthodontic treatment. They can be easily misplaced, forgotten, and even thrown away. At Cardinal Orthodontics, we believe your smile is a lifelong investment. We understand that one retainer won’t last you forever, and we don’t expect it to! This is why we provide FREE retainers for life to all of our patients. That’s right!
