Once you have achieved your perfect smile, Dr. Najirad will give you a set of retainers to help maintain the alignment of your teeth and ensure they do not move back or “relapse” into their original position. This is imperative in ensuring you do not have to wear braces again in future as it keeps your perfect teeth the way they are. Your teeth will have a tendency to move and shift even years after orthodontics treatment. Therefore, it is important to continue to wear retainers throughout your life. We want your smile to last a lifetime which is why we encourage wearing a lifetime retainer.
At My Smile Orthodontics Dr. Najirad will provide you with the correct retainer for your teeth based on your jaw, bite, and tooth type.
From invisible to wire, retainers come in a variety of styles. There are multiple options to suit with varying, and appearances. Retainers fall into three basic categories: permanent and two types of removable styles.
