Orthodontist in Marlborough: Retainers Are Necessary

Sharing is caring!

orthodontist in marlboroughYou’ve put time, money, and effort into orthodontic treatment to achieve your perfect smile, right? The last thing you want is to see all that progress go to waste! After your braces come off, there’s a chance that your teeth will shift back to their original position – and this is why retainers are so important for treatment aftercare. They help keep your teeth in place after your treatment, ensuring that your teeth stay in the desired position. Our orthodontist in Marlborough explains more today. 

Importance of Retainers

When you wear braces, force is applied to the teeth to loosen them and facilitate movement. Your teeth (and supporting tissues) remain loose after treatment is complete and can quickly move back to their original spots if you don’t follow your retainer regimen. For a few months after orthodontic treatment, you will generally need to wear your retainer all the time. Depending on your specific case, you should be able to switch to only wearing it at night to keep your teeth from shifting. 

What Types of Treatment Need Retainers?

No matter what type of treatment you underwent (metal braces, clear aligners, speed treatment), retainers are necessary for preventing any lapse in treatment. Our orthodontist will provide information depending on the severity of your case. You may need both upper and lower retainers or just one, and the length you have to wear them may differ from others.

Other Aftercare

It feels great to finally have your braces taken off! Make sure you maintain good oral hygiene, brush and floss regularly, and get regular checkups with our orthodontist. If you notice that your teeth are shifting out of place, even with regular use of your retainers, contact our orthodontist immediately. You don’t want to have to redo all that work!

  • “I just wanted to take the time to give some praise to this office and all the staff. My daughter got braces today and everything went great. The staff and all the doctors are very friendly and helpful. My daughter was a little bit nervous about getting her braces and the staff made her feel so comfortable. A+'s in my book.”

  • I like the service we receive during my son's appointments. I love the fact that when we are early, 99% of the time we are taken early. Most appointments are very quick. This last appointment was bitter sweet. Usually his Dad brings him to his appointments but he had passed away three weeks previous. I was going to mention it while we were there but they had already known and everyone made a point to extent their condolences to my son. It was very thoughtful and I appreciated it very much. Thank you!
