Your Role in Retention:

Dr. Goodman and our team will provide you with a customized retainer, ensuring your new smile stays in place. You’ll receive personalized instructions for retainer use, emphasizing the importance of your commitment to wearing them as advised.

Why Retainers Matter

Orthodontic treatment is a transformative journey, and once your braces or Invisalign come off, the results are nothing short of breathtaking. Yet, it’s important to recognize that the journey doesn’t end when your treatment is complete. Retainers are a crucial component of maintaining that beautifully aligned smile we’ve worked so hard together to achieve.

Types of Retainers Offered:

Hawley Retainers

A classic choice, these removable retainers combine metal wires and acrylic, custom-fitted for comfort and effectiveness.

Essix Retainers

Clear and subtle, these cover your teeth entirely, offering an invisible way to maintain alignment.

Fixed Retainers:

Permanently attached to your teeth, these are ideal for ensuring long-term results, especially for the lower teeth.

At Goodman Orthodontics, we emphasize the retention phase as a key part of your orthodontic journey. By following through with retainer use, you ensure that your smile remains as beautiful and healthy as the day your treatment concluded. For any questions about retention or to schedule an appointment, we welcome you to contact us.
After the active phase of orthodontic treatment, you transition to the retainer phase. To ensure a long lasting smile and healthy bite, Dr. Goodman takes a personalized approach, using state-of-the-art digital planning tools to design retainers that perfectly fit your new smile.
Just as your orthodontic journey was personalized, so is your retainer routine. Dr. Goodman will provide specific instructions on how to care for your retainers and how long you should wear them. Generally, it’s recommended to wear your retainers full-time initially, gradually transitioning to nighttime wear only.
