Once we remove your braces, we will move into the retention stage of your treatment. Maintaining the results you achieved during the treatment phase is key to the success of the entire orthodontic process. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far.

Fixed (Bonded) Retainers

lingualbondedretainerBonded lingual retainers are glued directly to the inside surface of your lower front teeth. This is one of the best ways to prevent your lower teeth from shifting as it is not removable! As with removable retainers, it is important to keep them clean. When brushing, carefully clean the inside of your lower teeth as well as the wire. If your retainer breaks at any time during the retention phase, please do not adjust it yourself. Call us immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.
