If you recently completed treatment at Get It Straight Orthodontics, we’d like to congratulate you! Now that your braces have been removed, Drs. Neil, Colleen, and Bock will provide—or have provided you—with retainers. After braces are removed, teeth can shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers, however, always provide that stabilization. They are designed to hold teeth in their corrected, ideal positions until the bones and gums adapt to the treatment changes. Wearing retainers exactly as instructed by Drs. Neil, Colleen, and Bock is the best insurance that the treatment improvements last for a lifetime.
