Will I Require a Retainer After My Clear Aligners?

Watch this video to learn more about the protocol for after-care when straightening your teeth using clear aligners.

Some people want to know if they need to wear retainer after clear aligners. And the problem with not wearing a retainer is the teeth will continue to shift and move and you can get crowded. I’ve seen a lot of people come in who’ve had braces and their teeth have shifted because they weren’t wearing an aligner. But we do offer a fixed aligner that basically goes wired behind the teeth to keep them straight.

Or we could make a removable aligner that you basically would just wear when you’re sleeping at night. And that usually keeps the teeth from moving.
