With any orthodontic treatment, you will need to wear a retainer when you are finished with your braces or aligners.

For some people, a retainer is needed temporarily to ensure your teeth remain in their new positions. Other patients may need to wear retainers while they sleep for much longer to stop their teeth from shifting back to their original spots.

Our orthodontists use retainers to help patients at all of our Indiana locations.
