Can I Wear Retainers Instead of Braces?

[dt_gap height=”25″ /]

The question that I’ll be answering today is “Can I Wear Retainers Instead of Braces?”

The answer is YES and NO.

In instances of very minor tooth movement, retainers can be worn to close small gaps. However, in cases where there is more extreme crowding, braces are a better option for alignment. Therefore, while retainers can fix small problems, the majority of people would need braces to achieve ideal alignment.
