You’ve just spent many months correcting your bite and straightening your teeth. Now that the braces have come off, you’re done, right? Well, not really…You must wear a retainer to help keep your teeth in their new positions.
There are two types of retainers that are offered at Gold Coast Orthodontics.
The removable retainers are custom fitted clear trays that help to maintain your teeth’s newly corrected positions. It is very important to wear your retainer exactly instructed especially during the first year. Following removal of your braces, we will monitor your retainers for another 2 years. Your orthodontist will assess your bonded retainers or your removable retainers throughout this time with retainer check appointments which we will ring you.
We recommend that you continue to see your general dentist for regular checkups and professional cleaning throughout and beyond your orthodontic treatment with us.
