Retention

Retainers available at Elizabeth Blake Orthodontics

The benefits of orthodontic treatment will last a lifetime if you keep these important patient responsibilities in mind:

Dental examinations and cleanings - The patient should continue with proper oral hygiene procedures at home, to include thorough brushing and flossing techniques. The patient should be seen by their family dentist at least every 6 months for cleanings and dental examinations.

Retainers - Once the active orthodontic appliances are removed, the patient will receive retainers to stabilize the dental correction. Because the bone and soft tissues surrounding the teeth are stabilizing for several months after braces are removed, it is imperative that the retainers are worn as instructed. Failure to wear the retainers may result in undesirable movement of the teeth, which could necessitate re-treatment.

Because teeth can continue to move throughout life, we feel that individuals who have undergone orthodontic therapy should wear retainers as prescribed by our practice.
