Dr. Scott Suter believes that retainers are an essential part to orthodontic treatment for his patients.
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, June 07, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Braces and orthodontic treatment comes with a hefty price, but they also come with a straighter, perfect smile. Dr. Suter understands the time and money Colorado Springs patients put into braces, and he wants to ensure that the new smile stays picture-perfect by wearing a retainer.
Retainers are devices that maintain patients teeth in their new and improved positions. If patient's teeth have recently been moved through orthodontics, retainers must be worn for a prescribed length of time. Even though the teeth already look perfect, the teeth can still move again with time. In fact, there is a natural tendency for bottom front teeth to gradually upright with age. This can cause the teeth to crowd as they move toward the tongue. Teeth that have been straightened have a type of remembrance of where they once were.
Wearing retainers is a crucial part of the orthodontic process, as well as following the instructions of wearing them. Instructions vary from patient to patient. Some patients will have to wear a retainer 24 hours; some will only have to wear at night, and others on an as-needed basis. Retainers can be removable or permanently placed on the teeth until removed by a dentist. The appropriate retainer will depend on the specifics of a patient's treatment, age, and the preference of Dr. Suter.
The importance of orthodontic retainers is an important topic to discuss with Dr. Suter. To make an appointment, call 719-550-0222. Colorado Springs patients can also request an appointment online by visiting www.suterorthodontics.com.
