Orthodontist in Beckton, London
NHS Orthodontics » Retainers
At the end of your Orthodontic treatment you will be given retainers to hold your teeth in their new positions. This is because it takes time for the bone and tissues around your teeth to stabilise. So wearing retainers is really important so that the teeth do not move back to their old positions.
Retainers are clear, removable and designed to keep your teeth straight. Retainers are usually worn full time for the first six months.
Your orthodontist will talk to you about how often and how long you will need to wear your retainers.
