Now that your smile has been straightened and restored, what's next? At Oasis Family Dentistry and Orthodontics, your care doesn't end after your braces come off. Our team emphasizes the retention of your smile results through proper care and maintenance!
Retain Your New Smile
Once you've completed the dental braces phase of your orthodontic treatment, Dr. Vohra will recommend a retainer to help you keep your straightened smile for years to come. To maintain your smile and ensure your results are set, you’ll have to wear your custom-crafted retainer. Retainers hold your new smile in place while limiting potential shifts in your alignment. They also help all the structures of your mouth adjust to the new positioning of your teeth.
At our Gilbert orthodontic office, retainers are always custom-made to perfectly fit your unique smile. Removable retainers are fitted trays that can be worn at night and easily removed to fit your lifestyle needs. Remember to wear yours on a regular basis and clean it thoroughly!
Dr. Vohra may also recommend fixed retainers. Fixed retainers consist of wires firmly attached behind the top and/or bottom teeth, and are usually set in place permanently. Fixed retainers require a bit of extra attention when flossing and maintaining your oral health routine, but you can trust our friendly team to set you up for success!
If you have any questions about care, cleaning, or maintenance with your new orthodontic retainer, just give our office a call and we'll be happy to assist you.
