The moment when your braces come off is finally here near Weaverville, NC! You’ve been waiting along time for this very moment! You are thinking, “Yes, I’m free”. Well almost…there is still one very important step.

When your braces are removed, you will receive retainers. Wearing retainers is one of the most important parts of your orthodontic treatment. You worked hard to get your teeth into their best possible position. However, when your braces are removed, the teeth have a tendency to want to return to their original positions. To prevent this from happening and to allow your teeth to adapt to their new positions, retainers must be worn faithfully.

Minor tooth movement occurs in every mouth throughout life in the Weaverville, NC area. The most common area for change is in the lower front teeth. These changes are normal and may be greatly minimized or possibly eliminated by continued retainer wear.

At TS Orthodontics, we want you to keep a healthy smile forever. Dr. Scanlan and TS Orthodontics near Weaverville, NC can’t emphasize the importance of retainers enough. Come in and talk to Dr. Scanlan about the pros to being a faithful retainer wearer.
