If you recently completed treatment at West Chester Orthodontics, we’d like to congratulate you! Now that your braces have been removed, Drs. Cassinelli and Shanker will provide—or has provided you—with retainers. After braces are removed, teeth can shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers, however, always provide that stabilization. They are designed to hold teeth in their corrected, ideal positions until the bones and gums adapt to the treatment changes. Wearing retainers exactly as instructed is the best insurance that the treatment improvements last for a lifetime.
To learn more about the advantages of wearing retainers after your orthodontic treatment with Drs. Cassinelli and Shanker, please read this helpful article about retainers from KidsHealth or give us a call!
