After removing your braces, our orthodontist will begin the retention stage of your treatment. This will last for a minimum of 24 months while we ensure that your teeth do not move out of their correct positions. When your braces are removed, Dr. Joseph P. Goodson will fit you with a retainer to help preserve your healthy smile. Remember, your final orthodontic result will depend on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you have put in so far, and remember to wear and care for your retainer as directed. Call 512-258-6683 today for more information about retainers in Austin, Texas, and schedule your appointment with our orthodontist.
