This is what we call the Retention phase. Once treatment is finished, we do not want your teeth to move back (relapse) to their initial position. This phase is just as important as the active phase of treatment.
We usually give you a fixed retainer as well as a removable one for you to sleep with. It is essential that you follow the instructions given for their use to prevent any unwanted movement after you obtain your perfect smile.
We will then see you periodically for retainer check controls for one year after you have your braces off.
