Importance of Retention

Why Retention is Important


Once your braces come off or your Invisalign treatment ends, you still have to maintain your smile. Left to themselves, your teeth will gradually move and shift into other positions. All of the hard work you put into your teeth could fade away over time.

To prevent that, we prescribe retainers to our patients. We recommend that all patients use a retainer at the close of their orthodontic treatment. Your retainer plays a vital role in ensuring that the beautiful results you see at the end of your treatment period last for a lifetime.

We offer both removable and permanent retainers to our patients. We’ll figure out what’s best for you based on your needs, teeth, and lifestyle. And we’re always here to help if something goes wrong with your retainer.

Life happens. Retainers get lost and broken, but we’re here for you. Even if it has been years since you last saw us, we can replace or repair your retainer. No matter how long it’s been, you will never pay full price for a retainer again!

We’re also happy to work with patients who did not have their original work done by us. We want everyone to enjoy straight teeth for a lifetime. Please give us a call for more details!
