If you recently completed treatment at Memorial Smiles, we’d like to congratulate you! Again Now that your braces have been removed, Dr. Magness will provide—or has 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.
