You Might Need to Use a Plastic Retainer After Invisalign®

Many people in the Springville, Utah, area with improperly aligned teeth will turn to the orthodontic services offered by Warren Orthodontics. After a comprehensive examination, our orthodontist can present you with an effective treatment plan. In some of these cases, Dr. Casey Warren can correct minor deviations in your dentition by providing you with Invisalign®.

This popular brand of clear plastic aligners will need to be created in a dental lab. The process requires you switch to a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of Invisalign® will gradually stretch the periodontal ligaments that anchor your teeth.

Once the ideal orientation of your teeth has been achieved there will still be a small amount of tension remaining in the periodontal sockets. If it’s not addressed by the consistent use of a retainer you teeth could relapse.

To prevent this from happening Dr. Casey Warren often provides a clear plastic retainer. It will be made from a material is very similar to Invisalign®.

You will need to wear the retainer in your mouth during the designated times. Cleaning and maintaining your clear plastic retainer each day will help reduce complications during the retention phase.

While it’s in your mouth can speak and drink normally. However, you will need to take it out when before eating. When you aren’t using the clear plastic aligner you should keep it in the case provided.

If you live in the Springville, Utah, area and you are interested in Invisalign® to correct your alignment issues, you should call 801-489-7878 to set up a consultation appointment at Warren Orthodontics.
