You got those pearly whites straight, so let’s keep them there. There are multiple types of retainers which are used for holding teeth in position as well as minor tooth movements. The best type and design for your particular needs will be determined by your orthodontist.
It is important to realize that, just like the rest of our bodies change with birthdays, so does the bone holding your teeth. If you stop wearing your retainer, your teeth will most likely move. As much as we love our patients and love seeing them, we do not want to see their teeth move after you have spent so much effort getting them straight.
