If you want to protect your Invisalign investment and maintain the results you worked so hard to achieve, you must wear a retainer. In all likelihood, Dr. Amir will instruct you to wear your retainer every day for a few hours or more depending on your individual needs.
Retainers are required after orthodontic treatment to keep your teeth in the desired position. Your teeth have the potential to move throughout your life, and if you don’t follow through and wear your retainer, your teeth will start to drift back into their original, crooked position.
The Importance of Retainers
Rather than thinking of a retainer as another inconvenience in your life, look at it as the second phase of your Invisalign treatment. Getting your teeth straight was the first step, and wearing your retainer is the second. If you came to us for treatment because you didn’t wear your retainer as a child and your teeth have relapsed, you already know how important the retainer phase is!
We want you to get the most out of your Invisalign treatment in Allentown, PA and help you understand how important it is to protect your investment by wearing your retainer. Please call our office to arrange a consultation with Dr. Amir so he can explain the Invisalign process and how retainers help keep your smile straight.
