Retainers San Rafael, CA

Maintain your orthodontic results!

RetainersIt took time, effort, and investment to create your confident and beautiful smile. To make sure that your new smile lasts, consider orthodontic retainers.

If you’ve ever had braces—or any orthodontic appliance for that matter—you’ve no doubt heard a lecture or two about brushing instructions and what types of food to avoid, that sort of thing.

And then comes that liberating day the braces come off, and you think you’re home free. Not quite. There’s a retainer in your future.

Don’t lose the results you worked for!

Your retainer adds the finishing touch to all those months in braces, Wearing your retainer faithfully will help keep your hard-won bite where it belongs. But lots of people, young and old alike, would just as soon be done with it, and “forget” to wear their retainer. Well, don’t fall into the trap and lose the results you worked for.

Importance of retainers

Studies show that without retainers straight teeth can gradually shift back towards their initial position. This is a common occurrence with all orthodontic treatment, but is one that can easily be overcome. Wearing retainers after traditional braces or Invisalign® treatment means you are keeping your teeth in their new position and protecting your smile and investment.

Customized orthodontic retainers

North Bay Dental can customize your retainer with colors and graphics and even make it neon glow-in-the dark so you’ll never lose it.
