Maintenance Tips for Teeth Retainers

Braces are quite inconvenient. After months of wearing those fixed braces, you’ve finally reached the stage where your teeth are free and your smile is restored, except now the doctor orders you to wear retainers. Retainers are much easier to wear for someone who has already gone through the ordeal of wearing braces, but these are removable devices that require regular care.

Difference between Invisible Retainers and Hawley Retainers

Retainers, as the name implies, is used to keep the teeth in their places after the braces have been removed. It could take up to 12 months for the teeth to settle in their places after orthodontic treatment as the bone around the roots takes as long to solidify completely. Orthodontic relapse is common among patients who skip on this step so if you do not want to waste all the money and trouble of undergoing orthodontic treatment, you must religiously wear dental retainers.
