When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far. Typically, removable retainers will be used unless there is a special stability concern and then a more permanent retainer may be required. In either case, the removable retainers are important to ensure that adverse tooth movement does not occur due to nighttime clenching or grinding habits. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
