Why are retainers important?
Once your treatment is complete, your teeth will want to shift back to their original positions. In order to keep them in their new alignment, you need the help of a retainer. It’s important to follow Dr Seerone’s instructions precisely so you can keep your straightened smile.
It takes about nine months for the connective tissues around your teeth to stabilise, so Dr Seerone may instruct you to wear your retainers both day and night for up to a year. After that, you may be told to wear them just at night, or even just a few nights a week!
