REASONS TO NOT STOP WEARING YOUR RETAINERS
So you’ve finally completed your orthodontic treatment? It’s time for celebrations, but don’t forget that it’s still incomplete without retainers. We understand that braces for children can be annoying, but using invisible aligners or retainers is a lot easier once you have completed months of wearing braces. Here are some reasons you should not stop wearing retainers for teeth:
Your Teeth Will Regress — One of the most important reasons to continue wearing that straight retainer is that you need to ensure keeping your teeth in perfect position. Of course, your teeth seem to be in the perfect place, but to keep that straight smile and make all that time in braces worth it, retainers need to be worn daily.
You’ll Throw More Money and Unnecessary Time Away — If you decide not to wear retainers or aligners after the braces, there are more chances that the teeth may start to go back to their previous position, which means all your efforts and hard work would go in vain. We know that orthodontic treatment costs thousands of dollars and hence it makes sense that you keep using invisible aligners for as much as your dentist suggests.
Shows a Lack of Responsibility — We know that irresponsibility and lack of dedication towards one’s dental health is simply not a good choice, so it is important that you make sure to keep wearing aligners and retainers even after you’re done wearing your braces.
