When patients complete orthodontic treatment, it is important to keep their smile in place. Teeth can start to drift and shift over time. To prevent this, our orthodontist will provide patients with dental retainers. This appliance keeps the teeth in place so that patients can keep their straight, beautiful smiles.
For a more permanent way to keep your smile in place, ask about our fixed retainers! Unlike removable retainers, these appliances are fixed to the back of the teeth. This means that the teeth are less likely to shift out of alignment. However, fixed retainers need to be taken care of. If at any time the fixed appliance is damaged, you will need to see Dr. George M. Ash for a retainer removal and repair. Even over time, fixed retainers will need to eventually be replaced. Keep in touch with Orthodontic Associates of Port Huron and see how our orthodontic office can keep your smile beautiful.
