    What happens when the braces come off

     teeth health smile dentistIt’s a great feeling once the braces come off your teeth but don’t forget to wear your retainer. Teeth are still moving and settling into their new positions and you must wear a retainer to stop them from moving too far during this period. Your dentist will talk to you about wearing your retainer and check that it is fitting correctly.

    Key takeaways

    – Teeth continue to settle into position once a brace is removed

    – A retainer must be worn while teeth are settling

    – See your dentist if the retainer becomes uncomfortable

    Follow your dentist’s advice after the braces are removed for the best results and a beautiful smile.

    “Getting orthodontic work done is one of the best things you can do for your smile. This corrective work will restore your natural bite, correct any crooked or crowded teeth, and leave you with a gorgeous smile that you can be proud of for life.”
