Retention

When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase is just as important as the braces phase. At Peel Orthodontics, we usually continue to review your retention for a further 12 months.

However, latest evidence shows that our teeth continue to move as we grow older, therefore we recommend at least night time retention for life. 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.
