When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. It is essential that you follow the instructions that we give to you when delivering your retainers. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth. It is important to keep your retainers in a safe place when they are not in your mouth to avoid accidental loss or breakage. We will continue to follow you during the retention stage of your treatment. There is no charge for these appointments.
