The retention phase

One of the most important parts of your orthodontic journey is the last one: retention. This is how you can ensure your new smile stays put, helping you maintain your amazing results for years to come.

Why retainers are important after treatment?

Your smile is always changing and a retainer will help you maintain a straighter smile throughout the natural shifts that occur as a result of growing, aging, experiencing stress, pregnancy, and other factors.

Consistently wearing a retainer as advised by your Specialist Orthodontist can also prevent the need for additional orthodontic treatments in the future.

Why retainers are important after treatment?

What are retainers and how do they work?

At Straight Smile Centre™, we offer two types of customised retainers designed to help keep your teeth stay in alignment. These are removable retainers and bonded lingual wires, which are fixed to the backside of your teeth, out of sight.

The first few months after your orthodontic treatment, your Specialist Orthodontist may have you wear your removable retainer throughout the day, slowly decreasing the amount of time you wear it. Eventually, you will just need to wear your retainer at night in order to keep your smile straight!

Dental Monitoring and lifetime retention

Maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile is an ongoing job. At the Straight Smile Centre™, we use our state-of-the-art Dental Monitoring app to monitor teeth stability and track any post-treatment shifts. This allows us to quickly make changes to your retention plan and recommend changes, if needed.

If you’re undergoing Invisalign® treatment, you may already be accustomed to the Dental Monitoring app. Tracking and maintaining your treatment results is as easy as snapping a selfie of your new smile!
