During and After Treatment

What To Expect

During treatment, adults need to be sure to maintain healthy gums and teeth by practicing good oral hygiene and having regular professional dental cleanings.

After we remove your braces (and celebrate!), it will be crucial to maintain the success of your orthodontic treatment by wearing retainers. Retainers hold the teeth in place and allow new supporting bone to develop around the new position we have created for your teeth. If retainers aren’t worn, teeth are likely to gradually move back to their original positions.
