After all of our hard work to straighten your teeth and perfect your bite, the last thing we want is for your teeth to drift back to where they started! Teeth have a tendency to return to their original positions because of “memory” in the gums and bone surrounding them. At Soleil Orthodontics we will give you a few options for retainers – some removable, some glued in. These retainers will act as your insurance policy that your beautiful, healthy smile will be maintained in the future. As you get closer to the end of treatment, Dr. Soleil and her team will describe the advantages and disadvantages to the different types of retainers we offer, and recommend the retainers we think are best for you. We want your bright smile to last a lifetime!
