ORTHODONTIC RETAINERS IN whittier, CA
An important part of providing high-quality care to our patients is helping them maintain their beautiful, straight smiles once they are out of braces. One of the main ways we do that is with an orthodontic retainer.
WHAT ARE RETAINERS?
Once your teeth have shifted to the correct position, they can quickly start to shift back to their original position. That would be a waste of your time and money! You made the commitment to achieve straighter teeth. Now, it is time to keep them that way.
Retainers are custom-made Whittier orthodontic appliances that are worn (typically on the palate) after you have completed orthodontic treatment. We recommend all patients wear a retainer for an extended period after treatment regardless of the type of treatment they have gone through (traditional braces or Invisalign®).
