My Teeth are Already Straight—Why Get a Retainer?

You've just gotten your braces off and are finally able to feel your straight, smooth, and perfect teeth. You may wonder why on Earth you need a retainer if you've just spent several years wearing your metal braces? A retainer helps hold the position of your teeth until they settle into their permanent positions on your jaw. Your orthodontist for retainers will likely recommend you wear your retainer for a full year before checking your teeth to make sure they don't need any more orthodontic work.

Prevent the Need for Another Round of Braces

It's extremely important that you wear your orthodontist-provided retainer exactly as they direct you to in order to avoid the need for braces again. If your teeth shift out of their positions due to a lack of a retainer, you could need to get your braces put back on and go through the entire process again. No matter what type of retainer you have, be sure to wear it as directed and get retainer replacement if necessary.
