Get It Straight, Keep It Straight
Getting braces or Invisalign is just the first step to obtaining your perfect smile. Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, we will fit you with a retainer to ensure your teeth stay straight.
This retention phase is extremely important for your new-and-improved smile. Wearing fixed retainers or removable retainers allows you to maintain the newly established position of your teeth. Your Tucson orthodontist will monitor your retention with occasional office visits for at least 24 months.
In order for retention to be successful, you must continue to wear a retainer even after you are done with your treatment. Your final orthodontic results depend on your use of retainers. Make sure you follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far and follow your orthodontist’s retention instructions.
Dr. Williams and the staff at Get It Straight Orthodontics in Tucson, AZ can help you figure out how to make retention a part of your daily life. We want to make this process as simple and as easy to follow as possible.
