    How To Manage Teeth Shifting After Your Braces Have Been Removed

    teeth health smile dentistGetting braces done by your dentist is a great way of repairing crooked teeth, fixing crowded teeth and restoring a natural, confident smile. However, it is important to be cautious and follow all instructions even after the braces have been removed. If you neglect your teeth, they will shift abnormally and not look good.

    Here is how to manage teeth shifting after your braces have been removed.

    Key takeaways

    – It is normal for teeth to make slight shifts after your braces have been removed, as they try to settle into their positions

    – During the shifting process, you should always wear your retainer to prevent excessive shifting.

    – A sign of excessive shifting is when your retainer does not fit your teeth.

    Always wear your retainer, avoid smoking and sugary foods, regularly clean your mouth and visit your dentist for checkups.
