While the experience of orthodontists across the country points to a
permanent improvement rate of 90 percent or greater, the long term
success of treatment may be jeopardized by failure to wear the retainers
as directed. This usually removable appliance is used to stabilize the
teeth in their proper positions following treatment. Wearing a retainer
faithfully is simply the final step that patients must make in their
commitment to their treatment. Just as they vowed to refrain from eating
certain foods that compromise the health of their teeth and braces, and
just as they made the effort to diligently clean their teeth, patients must
make every effort to wear retainers. Doing so should be made simpler by
the fact that the end result is in sight.

The removal of the braces does not signal the final stage of treatment
and should not be cause to let one's guard down. The importance of
retainers can be illustrated by the following example. During treatmen
the teeth are constantly moving and when the braces are removed, the
retainers serve as the 'brakes' to tell the teeth that the movement is done
and they should set and hold in position. The longer they are held in theie
positions, the more stable Pe are.

Different- kina o retainers are f tn' sr
rent reasons all t e
decision is usually made depending upon the patient's needs and
personal desires. If a particular design or style retainer is preferred this
can be discussed with the orthodontist and a mutually successful retainer
can be utilized. Retainers can range form different colors with designs
and decals to invisible.
