How Important is It to Wear a Retainer after Braces?
Posted on October 20, 2017
For months, you’ve eagerly looked forward to the finish line – getting your braces off and celebrating your new smile!
Now that treatment is completed, how can you ensure your investment lasts a lifetime?
To maintain your healthy, beautiful smile, you’ll need a little help from 3D Clear Retainers.
Why Retainers Matter
After your braces are off, teeth will naturally tend to shift. To prevent the teeth from shifting, retainers help maintain your alignment and proper bite.
But the benefits don’t end there!
Let’s take a closer look at how 3D Clear Retainers help your teeth.

How Long Do I Need to Wear a Retainer?
For best results, individuals should wear their retainers every night, for the rest of their lives. Wearing your retainer at night not only keeps your teeth in alignment, it helps protects teeth from grinding.
