Maintaining straighter teeth and oral health with retainers

Not everyone is born with absolutely uniform teeth. Further, accidents and/or injuries may cause your teeth to become crooked or misaligned. But the good news is that you don’t have to live with uneven teeth and feel embarrassed about your smile.

Our team of expert dentists at All Dental Tampa, Florida have consulted many patients with the above described teeth concerns and helped restore their beautiful smiles with braces and retainers. While braces can help restore a naturally beautiful smile, retainers ensure improved oral hygiene in the long-run. And the benefits of retainers aren’t just limited to holding the teeth in their new place, as is commonly believed.

How do retainers work?

A retainer is basically a detachable or fixed, custom-made device, which helps in maintaining the new position of the teeth, after the removal of braces. Retainers are also sometimes used for treating minor orthodontic concerns. Retainers are an extremely important dental accessory and need to be embraced as part of your post-braces recovery and care.

When is a retainer necessary?

And why are retainers so important? Well, while braces might have helped in successfully straightening your teeth, it is not always safe to assume that they are absolutely settled in this new position. The gums, muscles and bones in your mouth take some time to get accustomed to the new position of your teeth. Further, the teeth have a tendency to shift after a considerable amount of time has passed. Therefore, it is best to not avoid the use of retainers following the removal of your braces.
