You have committed to changing your smile. You have worn your braces or aligners and done everything you have been asked to do to get straight teeth.

Now, your Indiana orthodontist has just one thing left to do. You need to wear your retainer.

Don’t Relapse

In orthodontics, relapsing is when your teeth shift back toward their original position. Wearing a retainer is necessary to keep this from happening.

Use as Directed

Some people only need to wear a retainer for a few months. Some people need to wear them for years. Some people wear a retainer while they sleep for the rest of their lives. You need to do what it best for you and your smile, and your orthodontist can help you determine what that is.

Stay Clear

At Orthodontic Alliances, we provide our patients with custom-made clear retainers. These are practically invisible, which makes it easier for you to wear them after you finish your treatment.

Before you need a retainer, however, you need to complete your teeth-straightening process. To do that, plan to visit any of our locations. Call the office closest to you:
