An orthodontic relapse can occur if teeth move positions after the tooth straightening treatment (braces).
Our orthodontists have seen many cases where this has happened and now provide treatments to prevent and treat this problem.
Many patients believe that once their Invisalign treatment has been completed that it is the end of the orthodontic process, however further care is needed to avoid any threat or damage.
Ligaments that connect the teeth to the jaw bone are responsible for pulling teeth.
Orthodontic relapse is the process where these ligaments pull the teeth back after Invisalign.
protecting your teeth
After your treatment has been completed your dentist will place a fixed retainer in your mouth on the inside surfaces of the front 4-6 teeth of the arch that has been treated.
On most patients, we also create a removable retainer that looks similar to the clear aligner but is made of a stronger, greater material.
This specific retainer is called Vivera and is constructed using a special technology that helps the retainer to be more rigid and conformative.
Most traditional retainers are prone to relapse of treatment if they are not kept in the correct condition.
Removable and fixed retainers work to hold teeth in the correct position after your treatment has finished.
