Retainers

Whether you have had conventional braces or invisalign, you absolutely and most definitely need retainers! In the past, there has been some confusion over the necessity of retention after orthodontic treatment. The unfortunate truth is, teeth will move. They may move 2 months, 2 years or 2 decades after orthodontics, but they can always move. If you want your teeth to remain in their ideal position, you must wear retainers.

There are options for different types of retainers. Some are fixed to the teeth, while others are removable and usually worn at night. Different people require different types of retention and certainly your own preference will guide our recommendation. The dentists at North Brisbane Dental Clinic can provide you with any type of retainer to suit your needs.
