Orthodontics is a particular field of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental issues related to misalignments of the teeth and jaws. The American Association of Orthodontists suggests that your child’s first orthodontic evaluation should take place around the age of seven, but orthodontic treatment is certainly not limited to kids. More and more adults are now seeking out orthodontic care; in fact, one in five orthodontic patients is now aged 21 or over. When you decide on an orthodontic treatment, it’s important to prepare yourself for regular checkups, watching what you eat, and spending a little extra time brushing/flossing your teeth.

Removable retainers are clear and thin, slightly flexible, plastic-like material. They fit the exact shape and placement of the teeth. There are both removable and fixed retainers, Both types of retainers hold teeth in their new positions after “active” orthodontic treatment is completed. This allows newly formed bone to harden around the teeth. Wearing retainers as instructed is the key to maintaining the success of orthodontic treatment. When not in the mouth, removable retainers should be kept in the case provided by the orthodontist.
