ORTHODONTICS : How Long Should Someone Wear a Retainer After Their Braces Are Removed?

"This is the number one question that I get after I take someone's braces. When we get their braces off, it would be a big celebration and then we give them the retainers.

They would say, okay, how long do I have to wear my retainers? It's a good question and it's a valid question.

So, I would like to talk about different kinds of retainers, why we use them and how long you need to wear them.

The retainer that we used most often is a clear plastic retainer and this is a representation of it.

This is really nice for a couple of reasons. The number one reason is there are retainers that have a metal wire that go across the front teeth.

Those have their pros and cons. There's nothing worse than getting your braces off and all that metal out of your mouth and then putting a metal wire in someone's mouth and say, "okay now you have to wear them full time for a few months".

So, we use the clear plastic retainers, it works really well. This is a representation of someone's upper teeth, nice and straight after braces and the clear retainer just kind of pops right in like that.
