Getting Your Braces Off: A Simple Guide

Congratulations! Your braces journey is almost complete, and soon you'll be showing off your new, straight smile. This guide explains the final steps to ensure your teeth stay beautifully aligned:

Retainers: Your Teeth's New Best Friends:

  • Think of retainers like tiny guards for your teeth. Once your braces are removed, your teeth are still settling into their new positions. Retainers hold them in place, preventing them from drifting back to their old spots.
  • We'll give you both fixed retainers, bonded to the back of your front teeth, and removable retainers, like clear trays you wear at night. Both are important for long-lasting results.

Final Appointment:

  • This is a celebratory visit! We'll gently remove your braces and take impressions for your custom-made removable retainers. You'll get your fixed retainers right away, and your removable ones will be ready in about a week.


Costs of retainers:

  • The "Debond and Retainers" fee covers both your final appointment and your retainers. If your treatment lasts longer than 6 months, the removable retainers are included.
  • There are different types of removable retainers with varying costs. We'll discuss options and prices during your consultation.


Keeping Your Smile Sparkling:

  • Regular dental hygiene is crucial after braces. Brushing and flossing around your fixed retainers is essential. We can show you the best techniques.
  • We offer professional cleaning and polishing services to keep your smile bright and healthy.
