If you are one of our patients, you may have been prescribed aligners or braces by Dr. Stevens to help your smile. Once these orthodontic appliances are removed, you will receive a retainer or retainers to stabilize the dental correction. Retainers are a simple method to ensure that all of Dr. Stevens’s fantastic work on your teeth will not revert to its previous state. If you are prescribed retainers, you may have questions about them. At Hook Orthodontics, we have the answers.
Because the bone and soft tissues surrounding the teeth stabilize for several months after braces are removed, the orthodontic retention system must be worn as instructed. Failure to wear the retainers may result in undesirable movement of the teeth, which could necessitate further treatment. Because teeth can continue to move throughout life, we ask our patients to wear retainers as prescribed by Dr. Stevens.
