Once your teeth have been realigned, we will remove your braces, but only when both you and your orthodontist are happy with the appearance of your teeth. We will also take final photographs and impressions at this stage.
You will be provided with removable retainers to wear at night and when appropriate, permanent upper and lower bonded retainers which are fixed to the back of your front teeth. Wearing retainers is an extremely important part of your orthodontic treatment. Without correct and consistent wear of your retainer, your newly straightened teeth could move back to their original position.
One year on
We will review your teeth for a year after removal of your braces, but you are welcome to contact us if you have any concerns or queries after this period. We are proud of our substantial knowledge and years of experience and are readily available to offer help and advice when needed – we have your best interests at heart.
