Our Post Orthodontic Care

Custom retainers

Retainers are key to keeping teeth in place after braces or aligners come off. We provide custom-made retainers that are both comfortable and effective.

We offer you the choice of fixed retainers or removable retainers (or both).

  • Fixed retainers are bonded to the back of your teeth, providing a hassle-free, permanent solution that requires minimal maintenance.

  • Removable retainers can be taken out for eating and cleaning, offering flexibility while keeping your teeth aligned.

Regular Check-Ups

Multiple periodic treatment visits and check-ups are necessary for our orthodontists to monitor your teeth and check that your retainers are working properly.

During these visits, our specialists will examine your oral health, adjust your post-care treatment as necessary, and answer any questions you may have.

Professional cleaning and maintenance

Good oral hygiene is key to prolonging your orthodontic results. We offer professional cleaning services to remove plaque or tartar buildup, keeping your teeth and gums healthy.

Adjustments and repairs

If your retainer needs tweaking or repair, we’re here to help. Whether it’s a minor adjustment or a full replacement, we’ll make sure it remains effective and comfortable.

Every smile is unique, and the duration can vary, but typically, retainers are worn full-time for the first few months after your braces come off, and then at night after that.

We’ll provide a plan tailored to your specific needs, and we’ll make sure you know exactly how to keep your smile perfect.
