Why do I need to wear a retainer after Six Month Smiles treatment?

In order to maintain the results of your Six Month Smiles treatment at our Phoenix dental office, you will need to wear a retainer. The fact is that any orthodontic treatment needs to be followed by the consistent use of a retainer.

While Six Month Smiles braces are known for being efficient and comfortable, the treatment is still a big investment. Not only financially, but also in your time and effort. It makes sense that you should protect any investment, especially one that can have such a beautiful impact on your appearance.

Keeping Your Teeth Straight

A retainer is usually worn at night while you sleep, and is designed to hold the teeth in their optimal position after treatment is complete. If you don’t wear a retainer, your teeth can gradually move out of alignment and undo the results you worked so hard to achieve.

This happens because your teeth are always moving to some extent. Many people have found this out the hard way, because if you don’t wear a retainer, you will be amazed at how quickly teeth can revert to a misaligned position.

Wearing a retainer every night may seem unappealing, but if you consider the alternative, the choice is simple. Please contact Singh Smile Care for more information about the details behind Six Month Smiles treatment.
