Orthodontic treatment can straighten your smile, but once your treatment ends, you need to take action to ensure your new smile lasts for a lifetime. Without retainers, your teeth may be more prone to shifting or drifting back into their previous positions. This can occur shortly after treatment, but it is extremely preventable with retainers. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign retainer expert can help you decide if Invisalign retainers are right for you.
Invisalign retainers are designed using the same leading-edge technology used in Invisalign aligners. If you are a candidate for Invisalign retainers, our expert in Invisalign retainer in Huntington Beach will create a digital image of your teeth. This image will provide us with a template for a virtual model, which will be used to form your retainers. These retainers are fully customized using the same materials and techniques that are used to create Invisalign, which means that you can enjoy the comfortable, precise fit. The material is significantly stronger than similarly designed retainers.

Once your retainers have been designed and created, you will be ready to get started on this new phase of treatment. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign retainer expert will explain how to use your new retainers. In most cases, patients will need to wear their retainers at all times, much like they did with their Invisalign aligners. Over time, the length of time you wear your retainers will decrease until you are only wearing them at night. Good brushing and flossing habits continue to be important throughout the retention period. They will help your teeth and gums look and feel great and reduce the risk of dental disease. Retainers will occasionally need to be replaced due to normal wear and tear. You will also need to clean them every time you remove them and before replacing them to ensure the best results.
Undergoing orthodontic treatment often requires a big investment of time, energy, and money. Our expert in Invisalign retainer in Huntington Beach can help you protect that investment and keep your teeth in their proper positions for life.
