Teeth like to shift back to their original positions after your active treatment is complete, which is when we remove your braces or complete your Invisalign treatment. That means that as exciting as that day is, the work isn’t finished. Retainers need to be worn indefinitely to keep the teeth where they are. We offer both removable and fixed retainers and will review your options when you begin the retention phase. We will also continue to see you periodically for one year after your active treatment concludes.
