Once your orthodontic treatment is completed, it is important to wear a retainer as directed. That is because teeth naturally tend to drift back to their original locations. Wearing a retainer holds your teeth in their new positions long enough for new bone and ligament to re-form around them, helping maintain your new smile. Call Pediatric Dental Associates & Orthodontics at 860-649-4655 to learn more about retainers in Manchester, Connecticut, and make an appointment with our orthodontist, Dr. Jason Raney.
