An orthodontist is a dentist with specialized, additional training in straightening and aligning teeth. Our Harvard-trained orthodontist, Dr. Hamid, will help you get the gorgeous smile of your dreams using the latest technologies. One such orthodontic technology is the retainer.
What Are Orthodontic Retainers?
An orthodontic retainer is a removable device that fits into your mouth. Retainers are used to keep your teeth in the right position. Typically, orthodontic retainers are instituted after a patient has completed using braces. Retainers are also used after surgery for severe overbites or underbites. And sometimes, an orthodontist may use a retainer by itself as the main treatment, without any other alignment methods such as braces.
