retainer wear and care

Once teeth are straight and braces have been removed, it’s important to follow Dr. Parker’s instructions about wearing retainers. As teeth move, the bone and tissue around teeth did a lot of changing as well…Retainers allow the teeth to settle into their new positions and maintain the alignment that braces achieved. Without proper retainer wear it is very easy for teeth to move from their nice, straight positions.
