How Do Retainers Work?

As your body grows, your teeth naturally shift within your mouth. Orthodontists usually recommend the use of a retainer to control this shift. Although they are often used by people who have recently had their braces removed, retainers can also be effective without the use of braces.

Retainers are made of uniquely molded plastic and metal that is designed to fit around your upper teeth and the roof of your mouth. When you use a retainer, the shifting of your teeth is restricted to the confines of the mold. Since the retainer is constructed to meet the needs of your mouth specifically, this can slowly force your teeth to come together and close any gaps. Retainers are commonly used to keep your teeth in their new positions after your braces have been removed.
