If you just had your braces removed and are wondering how to keep your newly straightened teeth from moving, you’ve come to the right place. Smile in Style provides dental retainers for your teeth in Cedar Park for after the braces come off.

A dental retainer is an appliance that is worn over teeth that might otherwise move due to the recent stopping of orthodontic treatment, such as braces. Our clinic in Cedar Park offers dental retainers to help the teeth stay in place and provide stability. There are two types of retainers:

  • Clear retainers, made from acrylic plastic and can be fitted with a removable wire for more stability.
  • Bite guards, which are made from rubber or silicone and provide less stability.

The retainers our Cedar Park clinic employs after braces work by applying gentle pressure to the teeth to prevent them from moving back into their original position, and should only be worn for as long a time as is necessary to keep your teeth in their new, improved position – usually about six months.

There are many reasons why teeth may move after braces, such as the mouth needing to readjust, biting down too hard or not hard enough, and even lack of proper oral hygiene. This is why our orthodontics clinic in Cedar Creek uses dental retainers after braces have been removed. Not only does it help keep your teeth in place, but it also helps preserve any changes that were made during your time with braces.
