Do I need to wear a retainer?
Retainers Are An Essential Part of Treatment
Whether you are considering orthodontics or just completed your treatment, it is important to know that wearing a retainer is an essential part of your treatment. We will recommend retainer use based on your personal orthodontic situation and go over how to best use your retainer toward the end of your treatment. We have a choice of retainers for you to choose from and feel confident that you will find one that works for you.
Protect Your Smile
Since you made an investment in your smile, protecting it is important. Failure to wear a retainer can result in orthodontic relapse. This means that after orthodontic treatment, your teeth begin to drift back out of alignment. If they drift too far, your retainer will no longer fit.
You might be surprised to discover how quickly your teeth begin to move. Even forgetting your retainer for a day or so can negatively impact your smile. That is why it is so important that you reach out to our Santa Monica dental office if you lose or break your retainer. We can arrange a replacement so that your beautiful new smile stays that way.
