With the right care, braces can keep your teeth straight for life, but that’s only if you follow your orthodontist’s instructions carefully and keep up the care after your orthodontic treatment!
During your orthodontic treatment, your braces shift your teeth to new positions which offer better aesthetics and functionality. For some lucky people, this is all that will be needed to keep their teeth straight for the rest of their lives with minimal post-orthodontic care. However, others may experience shifts in the new positioning of their teeth when they have their braces removed.
After your orthodontic treatment, Norwest Orthodontics recommends that you use a retainer to keep your teeth aligned just as they are right after your orthodontic treatment finishes. We prefer to use comfortable invisible retainers to retain the new positioning of your teeth.
If you’re concerned about the permanency of orthodontic treatments, Norwest Orthodontics’ Specialist Orthodontist Dr Shimanto Purkayastha can help guide you through the treatment process from tailoring the treatment specifically to your teeth right through to all post-treatment care.
