In brief: Retention

Retention is an active part of your Orthodontic care.
There were good and just reasons for your treating Dentist or specialist Orthodontist's recommendation. Your choices are to return to your Orthodontist for active treatment to revise and then an intensive retention program, or accept that your teeth have moved and will continue to do so.

In brief: Ortho retention

You have two choices.
Either see the Orthodontist to correct the shifting of the teeth and then commit to wearing the retainers as recommended or......accept the consequences for what happens if you stop wearing the retainers.
