Retainer Therapy

When we remove your braces, we know how excited you'll be: your teeth will be smooth, your smile will be straight, and you can finally eat whatever you want! But don't celebrate too much just yet - your treatment isn't over! Once your braces come off, we'll begin the retention stage of treatment, which is just as vital as your actual braces. Without retention therapy, your teeth will just move back to their original positions, erasing all of your hard work!

The retention phase will last for a minimum of 24 months, and it's extremely important that you're just as diligent as you were when you have your braces. Dr. Lefort will fit you with a customized retainer and give you detailed instructions for how to wear it. At first, you'll likely have to wear it 24 hours a day, but eventually that will change to only at night, and after that, a few nights a week. Just keep in mind that it's extremely important to wear your retainer for as long as Dr. Lefort recommends. However long you're wearing your retainer for, be sure to remove it before brushing and brush it before replacing it in your mouth - keeping it clean is an important part of your treatment process.
