Why do I have to wear a retainer?
After orthodontic treatment, your teeth will want to slide back into their original positions. A retainer will hold them in alignment and protect them from shifting. You need to follow Dr Griffith’s instructions carefully to ensure you keep your straight smile for life.
You will be asked to wear your retainer every night for up to 12 months at first, but once directed, you will be able to reduce the wear to 5 nights a week.
