How long will I need to wear retainers?

Orthodontic treatment does not end when you have your braces removed or stop wearing your Invisalign aligners. If you want to maintain the beautiful results, you need to get used to the idea of wearing your retainers conscientiously every day. 

The reason a retainer is necessary is because your teeth are always moving to some degree. Because of this movement, you will require some type of orthodontic retainer after Invisalign treatment to maintain the corrected alignment.

If you don’t wear the retainer, it is likely that your teeth will begin to drift. Going without a retainer for even a short period of time can allow teeth to shift and cause another misalignment.

At Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, we design retainers that are either fixed or removable. Dr. Yazji will discuss both these options with you and help you make the decision as to which will be most beneficial for your situation.

Once you’ve invested in orthodontic treatment for you or your child, it makes sense to look at the retention phase as an ongoing and necessary part of your treatment. You’ve already made an investment in a beautiful, healthy smile. By conscientiously using your retainer, you are simply protecting your investment.

Please call our Miami, Brickell, or Weston dental office, and we’ll be happy to arrange a consultation to answer all your questions about orthodontic treatment.
