Retainers are a device generally used as a follow up treatment for people who have previously worn braces for a determined period of time.
Dental retainers are also employed as a means of reinforcing the process of realigning the teeth into permanent positions. Another application of dental retainers is to help correct an underbite or overbite, bringing the two rows of teeth into a more natural alignment.
Most retainers are removable, meaning that you take them out when eating, brushing and flossing. Many types of comfortable and even invisible retainers are available today thanks to modern dentistry. Visit our dentist for more information and find out what treatment is suitable to you.
