Teeth Shift Back

Teeth Shift Back?
Posted on 11/28/2017

Did you know that teeth could shift back to their original positions after braces have been removed? To avoid losing all of the hard work you have put into orthodontic treatment, we provide clear retainers to help hold your teeth in position. Before removal of the braces, we will place a wire on the tongue side of your upper and lower front teeth. This wire is a safety net during the first six months post orthodontic treatment. It is NOT a replacement for the regular clear retainer and will NOT hold the teeth straight, long-term. The clear retainer is removable and should be worn as instructed.
