Wearing a Retainer after Orthodontic Treatment

Posted on January 29, 2019

Did you just get your braces off? Don’t forget to wear your retainer!

A retainer is a device designed to be worn after orthodontic treatment to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position. After your braces have been removed, the bone around your teeth has to harden and stabilize. This is why wearing a retainer every night is crucial. We want you to be able to maintain your new, beautiful smile!

Lifetime retainer wear

No matter how long you have had your braces off, some teeth will always want to move back to their original position. This is why at Cardinal Orthodontics we recommend lifetime retainer wear every night.

What if I lose my Retainer?

We’ve got you covered! At Cardinal Orthodontics, we believe you invested in a straight smile that should last forever. This is why we offer free, 3D clear retainers for life! We even give you two sets right after your braces come off so you always have a backup.

There are other options for retainers if you are not interested in the 3D clear removable ones we offer. Ask us at your next visit what your options are and what will best suit your lifestyle!
