Retention

Dr. Beckwith says that his favorite part of being an orthodontist is seeing that first beautiful smile after the orthodontic appliances are removed.  We love to celebrate with you!

You need to know that holding the teeth in their finish position is one of the most challenging parts of orthodontic treatment in any office.  Dr. Beckwith knows this which is why we routinely utilize both invisible bonded (glued-in) retainers and removable retainers.  We take the extra steps to help ensure that you remain happy with your orthodontic result long into the future. 

Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so you will want to follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far.  Please wear your removable retainer as directed and follow our recommended care instructions for your bonded retainer(s).  Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
