Your retainer has been specially designed to help maintain the improvements we have achieved together. Shortly after the braces are removed, the teeth can shift as they are used. The teeth will need support, and your cooperation in wearing your retainer as directed will be important:
Your retainer is durable, but needs "tender loving care" in order to do its job.
If for some reason, you cannot wear your retainer as suggested, please let us know so that the adjustments can be double checked. We want to do everything possible to help you succeed in this final, but important phase of treatment.
As we grow and mature, everything undergoes change. Some minor shifting and settling of our teeth is expected. Proper retainer wear will keep these changes to a minimum. If there are any questions regarding your new retainers, please feel free to ask. Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation.
