Invisible Retainers: Life after Braces

April 9, 2013

Many of our patients wonder about what’s in-store for them after the long period of wearing clear ceramic braces or Invisalign treatment. The last thing you want is for all your hard work to go to waste when your teeth slips back into their previous position. This is why it’s important for patients to proceed with invisible retainers so they may keep the awesome results.

While wearing retainers soon after you’re done with braces or Invisalign treatment may be less than ideal, it’s the only way to keep your teeth straight. The soft and hard tissues around the teeth will take around two years to remodel.  In some patients, it may take even more. This is but a small sacrifice if you think about the aesthetic benefits of having straighter-looking teeth.

Benefits of Invisible Retainers

Part of the reason most patients skip wearing retainers is it makes them look dorky. This is primarily the reason we perfected the technology behind invisible retainers. You may now wear them and keep your teeth from misalignment with other people not noticing you’re even wearing one.  Invisible retainers are just that, invisible. Most people won’t know you have one on unless they look really close.

Our invisible retainers are made of clear plastic that fits into the contours of your teeth like gloves.  This makes them more effective in keeping your teeth straighter.

We would like to talk to you about the benefits of invisible retainers. The procedure it takes to make teeth straighter is a long and even painful process. It will definitely be in your favor if you squeeze in a couple more years to ensure they stay that way forever.

Give us a call for an appointment or drop by our clinic today so we tell you more about it. We look forward to seeing you in our clinic soon.
