Dr. Suzanne Stock Orthodontist strives to be your premier choice when you’re looking for an orthodontist in and around the cities of Iowa City, Fairfield, Washington, and Williamsburg, Iowa. We offer a wide variety of orthodontic treatments that are sure to suit the needs of any and all prospective patients. After you’ve undergone one of our many treatments, you’ll then move onto the final stage of your orthodontic treatment, the retention phase.
The Retention Phase
After you have your braces removed, you may feel happy and relieved that you’re finally done – but wait just a minute – the process isn’t quite over yet! You’ll then move into the retention stage of your treatment. Dr. Stock uses both fixed and removable retainers and will decide what type of retainer is most appropriate for you. Dr. Stock will also provide specific instructions on how often and for how long the retainers should be worn. Your final orthodontic result depends on your usage of retainers, so you’ll want to wear them just as prescribed to make sure that your teeth don’t shift back into misalignment. Also, remember to brush your retainer frequently to keep it clean.
