Why Should You Choose Permanent Retainers Over Other Options?
Posted on 3/7/2022 by Joseph Kabaklian DDS
Permanent retainers are an excellent option for people who have had some teeth pulled and want to keep them from shifting out of place. But it's essential to be sure that this treatment is the right choice for you before going ahead with it. Read on to find out what a permanent retainer can do, how they work, and whether or not they're right for you!
What are permanent retainers, and why do people wear them?
Permanent retainers are small, plastic appliances that fit behind the teeth to keep them from moving. They're typically used on some of the upper front teeth after being removed for orthodontic treatment.
There are two main reasons people wear this type of retainer. First, it keeps their smile looking perfect by preventing any shifting or gap formation between their new tooth positions and where their old ones were before having work done; second, permanent retainers ensure that your final results will last a long time! Once you've worked so hard to get your new smile just right with braces or other treatments, wouldn't you hate to see all those efforts go out the window if one of your teeth moved?
What are the benefits of wearing a permanent retainer?
The benefits of a permanent retainer depend on what they are being used for. For example, when worn following orthodontic work to keep teeth from shifting after the braces have been removed, it ensures that your new smile will be perfect and long-lasting without requiring you to wear an uncomfortable set of wires or brackets again.
When wearing one in general, just because it is aesthetically pleasing, nobody wants their nice straight teeth eventually going back towards crooked! The reason people get cosmetic dentistry procedures done in the first place is so that they can see good results over time - if something like a retainer isn't part of the treatment plan, then there's no point in doing anything at all. If you want your final result from having dental work done to last, then wearing a retainer of some kind is the only way!
