If you’ve recently completed treatment at Dr. Styrt’s office, we’d like to congratulate you! Now that your braces have been removed, Drs. Styrt and Job will provide—or have provided you—with retainers. After braces are removed, teeth can shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers, however, provide that stabilization. They are designed to hold teeth in their corrected, ideal positions until the bones and gums adapt to the treatment changes. Wearing retainers exactly as instructed by Drs. Styrt and Job is the best insurance that the treatment improvements last for a lifetime.

To learn more about the advantages of wearing retainers after your orthodontic treatment at Dr. Paul J. Styrt, Specialists in Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry, please read this helpful article about retainers from KidsHealth or give us a call!
