The Importance of Wearing Your Retainer

After having braces for months, all you want is for your teeth to be free, we know. Even though you have graduated from braces, you still need to keep your teeth straight by wearing your retainer! Today we are going to remind you of why wearing your retainer is important to your dental health!

Keep Those Teeth Straight

Seriously! If you don’t wear your retainer after you have your braces removed, stubborn teeth have a tendency to move back to their original position. Wear your retainer in order to keep that beautiful smile you worked so hard to have!

Save Money

Once you have paid to get braces, why let that money go to waste and let your teeth revert back to being out of line? If you keep wearing your retainer, you don’t have to spend the money later to fix it again!

At Progressive Family Dentistry we know that life can get a little hectic, but we encourage you to keep wearing those retainers and keep coming in for appointments! We love seeing those happy, bright, and amazing smiles!
