Braces Retention

Question:

My orthodontist “jacked up my teeth” because they moved when I did not wear my retainers. Can you fix my problem?

Answer:

It can be frustrating when you notice your teeth shift after orthodontic treatment. However, this was not caused by your orthodontist. Not wearing your retainer resulted in your teeth moving. If I fix your smile again, and you do not wear your retainer, your teeth will move again. To answer your question, yes, I can fix your teeth and will provide you with both a fixed retainer (permanently glued to your teeth) and a removable clear retainer. However, it is your responsibility to wear the removable retainer in order to keep your teeth from shifting. Chat with my staff 24/7 and schedule your complimentary consultation.
