Houston’s Family Orthodontist

“Hey Dr. Magness! What’s the deal with retainers?”

If you recently completed treatment at Memorial Smiles, we’d like to congratulate you! Now that your braces have been removed, Drs. Marc and Bonham Magness will provide—or have provided you—with retainers. After braces are removed, teeth can shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers 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. Marc and Bonham Magness 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 Memorial Smiles, please read this helpful article about retainers from KidsHealth or give us a call!
