Welcome to Gower Family Dentistry, your trusted dental practice nestled in the heart of charming Beaufort. We are delighted to provide comprehensive dental care with a touch of Southern charm. As part of our commitment to maintaining your beautiful smile, we offer retainers – an essential component of orthodontic treatment. Let us help you preserve your straight, healthy teeth and ensure that your smile stands the test of time.
Retainers play a crucial role in maintaining the results of orthodontic treatment. Here are some key benefits of using retainers:
During your orthodontic treatment at Gower Family Dentistry, our skilled dental team will guide you through the process of wearing retainers. Once your braces or aligners are removed, we will take impressions or digital scans of your teeth to create custom-fitted retainers. These retainers will be designed specifically for your mouth, ensuring a comfortable fit and optimal effectiveness.
You will be instructed on how often and for how long to wear your retainers. Initially, you may need to wear them for most of the day, gradually transitioning to nighttime wear only. Consistency in wearing your retainers as instructed is crucial to maintaining the results achieved through orthodontic treatment.
Proper care and maintenance of your retainers are essential to keep them clean, odor-free, and effective. Here are some tips to help you care for your retainers:
