The Importance Of Wearing Retainers After Treatment

Unfortunately, everyone wasn’t born with a perfect smile. Many children are born with an overbite, and underbite, crowded teeth, or gaps in their teeth. This is where braces and Invisalign can help. When you take your child to the orthodontist for either of these treatments, your child will need to wear them for a year or more. Once the treatment is over, it isn’t the end. Once the braces and Invisalign come off, your child will be fitted with a retainer. Not every child gets the same retainer schedule. It depends on the child and their treatment provider’s recommendation. Regardless of the instructions that you receive, you should make sure that your child wears their retainer as directed. There are several reasons that it is so important.

life

Don’t take life too seriously! Nobody gets out alive anyway. Smile. Be goofy. Take chances. Have fun. Inspire ― Dawn Gluskin

People often compliment me on my smile

Growing up my father would often share with me words of wisdom whenever I got stressed out. He asked me to imagine what life would be like a year from now or five years from now because usually, the situations I was worried about would not have an impact on me beyond the week, the day, or even the hour.

Many adults have only minor malocclusions that are easy to repair in a year or less with Invisalign aligners.
