How Long Do I Need Retainers?

[dt_gap height=”25″ /]

The question Diamond Braces is answering today is: “For how long will I need to wear the retainer?”

The answer is for the rest of your life. Teeth are part of your body and grow along with it. The retainer keeps the teeth in the best position. It would be a shame to spend a significant amount of time and money on orthodontic treatment only to see your teeth move back to their original position from before. This is why we recommend wearing a retainer permanently.
