Supervised Retention – Completed
Often patients require fixed retainers which are wires that are glued to the tongue side of the front teeth. These retainers should be left in place for a minimum of two years. I recommend leaving the wires indefinitely as long as the teeth around the wires are kept clean and the gum tissues are healthy. If your dentist informs you that the teeth are not being kept clean and the gums are not healthy resulting in a risk for tooth decay and gum disease, then the wires can be removed. If the wires are removed then the removable retainers should be used every night.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any difficulties with your retainers or if you require advice or support in any way. I would like to take this opportunity to stress the ongoing need for regular check-ups with your dentist in order to maximize your oral health and thank you again for your confidence in selecting our office for your orthodontic treatment.
