do you have to wear a retainer forever?
Here, at the Perfect Smile, a burning question we often receive from patients is often “how long will I have to wear a retainer for?”
However, there are many factors that will determine and influence the duration you will need to wear a retainer after your teeth straightening system, these include:
- The type of teeth straightening system you use
- The severity of your orthodontic issue
- What additional treatments are required as part of your treatment
Removable retainers are generally only worn during the night and perhaps for a year.
It is important to note that each case is unique and different, therefore the dentist will advise you according to your situation.
Retainers are very comfortable and most patients do not seem to have any problems with them.
They simply provide the peace of mind that the aligned teeth will remain straight.
