CONGRATULATIONS…you did it!
When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase is usually a minimum of 12 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on you and your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth. We never recommend you stop wearing your retainers. They will continue to give you the beautiful smile you have strived for!
Please refer to the Oral Hygiene page for instructions on how to care for your retainer.
