Congratulations! You are near the end of your smile journey and your braces are about to be off! Nothing like that feeling. Even long after our braces are off, teeth shift and it is natural as we grow older. There is one thing you can do to ensure your smile remains the best it can be and that is wearing retainers.
No matter your situation, it’s almost a guarantee you will be wearing some form of a retainer after having your braces are removed. It might be removable retainer, which is removed for eating and cleaning or a bonded retainer, placed discreetly behind your teeth.
There might be a minor adjustment period when you first put your retainer on. Don’t worry, this is completely normal and will pass soon enough.
Retainers are essential for helping your teeth stay in place in their new positions after wearing braces.
