• Retainer Instructions from Columbia Orthodontics in Vancouver & Battle Ground

  • friends-409403_640You’ve just had your braces removed. You love your smile. You have taken 58 selfies and they are all getting a lot of “likes” online. You are done with your Columbia Orthodontist.

    While you are done with braces, it is now your job to maintain that beautiful smile.

    You have a new retainer, and while it may seem like a waste of time, it will keep your teeth from shifting back to their original place.  It is very important for you to wear this retainer to keep your selfie-loving smile from change.

    As with all other parts of our bodies, teeth have a tendency to change over time.  It is not uncommon for teeth to shift, and you can prevent this by wearing your retainer.

    Dr. Croft will explain to you the proper way to wear your retainer. He has had years of experience and wants you to love your smile as much in ten years as you do today.
