Retainers are required in any orthodontic treatment to maintain straight teeth.  Through extensive research it was found that 9 out of 10 people who stop wearing retainers after braces will see some degree of "relapse" in their smile.  For this reason, the doctors of Reidsville Orthodontics, along with the American Association of Orthodontics, recommend anyone who has received treatment continue to wear their retainers nightly for as long as they would like to maintain their treatment outcome.  Just like brushing your teeth, this small daily habit can allow you to keep your beautiful and healthy smile for a lifetime.

Retainers come in many shapes and forms that your orthodontist may choose based on your individual needs.  If you have questions about retainers or need help with your current retainers, please don't hesitate to contact us.
