Jennifer: Invisalign® to the Rescue
Jennifer was unhappy with her lower front teeth, over the years she was noticing her teeth becoming more and more crooked. Almost 13 years ago she had traditional braces. Jennifer didn’t want to go through the discomfort and inconvenience she had experienced with the traditional braces and felt based on what she’s heard about Invisalign® she would give it a try. It took only 10 months and Jennifer was able to straighten out her teeth. Look at Jennifer’s new smile and you can literally see her happiness.

The great thing about Invisalign is that even if she wasn’t done by her wedding day, she could take the Invisalign trays off and her smile would still be dramatically improved. Lorrielynn couldn’t wait to start! She ended up being an amazing patient and finished with a beautiful and confident smile in 15 months.
Invisalign Retainers A dental appliance used to hold teeth in their correct position especially following orthodontic treatment. A retainer keeps your teeth from moving after they’ve been straightened with braces. It can take at least four to six months for the new position of your teeth to become permanent. During that time, your teeth will try to shift back to their original position, which is called relapse. Do you have to wear your retainer forever after braces? Adults should wear their removable retainer or retainers every night, whether three of 30+ years after orthodontic treatment, unless specifically told otherwise by their orthodontist. But can wearing an old retainer to straighten teeth work? As it turns out, it can. Retainers aren’t just there to keep your teeth in place, after all. Because they’re custom made, they can also help improve any minor oral problems you might find years after you had your braces removed. Some people need to wear a retainer all day, every day for 4 months, while others will be instructed to wear theirs for 12 months. Almost all orthodontists instruct that you use some form of retainer each night, indefinitely, after your braces have been removed. 5-20 days are ok to go without a retainer. If you are using a removable retainer, you can switch to a fixed one. There is no hassle in a fixed retainer like there is in the removable ones.
