Swords Orthodontics delivers a vital piece of retainer advice!


Some pretty fundamental advice about retainers - wear them!

Here at Swords Orthodontics this week, I had several patients in who hadn't worn retainers after treatment and they were very disappointed about the changes in their teeth since treatment. Some seemed surprised, and even more surprised when I told them they'd need to have orthodontic treatment again to get the teeth back to the way they were when their treatment finished and their original retainers were made for them.

With modern orthodontic techniques, including Invisalign, it's possible to sort out these changes quickly and often invisibly, but really it's easier not to have to sort them out at all and just keep the great results you get first time round.

If you want teeth to stay straight after treatment, then wear your retainers as your orthodontist advises.
