This short video shows how easy it is to use retainers…featuring one of our patients at Cleveland Orthodontics.
After braces, it’s time for retainers. Without them, teeth can drift back to where they started.
A second reason to wear retainers is that teeth tend to become more crooked with age (whether you have had orthodontic treatment or not).
So the advice is that retainers should be worn for as long as you want teeth to stay straight…which for most people means lifelong wear.
You can learn more about the things you need to know about wearing retainers.
