Life with Braces

Congratulations on the removal of your braces! Here at Trinity Orthodontics, we are dedicated to retention, the final step in your orthodontic treatment.

Did you know
…that wearing your retainer can keep your teeth from moving back out of alignment so you can show off your new smile for many years to come!

After you have worn your braces for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is very important not to skip this step or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may move back instead of staying in place.

Wear Your Retainer
During retention, you will need to wear retainers as your teeth adjust to staying in their new place without braces. You should wear your retainers as recommended by your dentist. Some can be worn only at night, while others need to be worn almost all of the time.

Brush Your Teeth and Retainer
It is really important that you continue to brush your teeth while you are in this stage. All you have to do is remove your retainer, and then you will be able to brush your teeth better than you were able to when you had braces. You should also brush your retainer before placing it back to your mouth.
