A retainer is a plastic device that fits snugly around your teeth and holds them in position after treatments like Invisalign®, metal braces, or ceramic braces have caused the teeth to shift into a new space. Without retainers, your teeth could slowly move back into their prior position, causing gaps in teeth, misalignments, and other dental issues to reoccur. In many cases, the orthodontists at Concerned Dental will only ask you to wear your retainers at night or for a short length of time during the day in order to keep them from shifting. Our orthodontists always take the time to create custom-fitting retainers for each of our patients so that you’ll have a unique, comfortable, and pain-free retainer that fits your teeth perfectly.
