Q: Will my teeth shift after my braces are removed?

A: No. With proper retainer wear, your teeth should stay straight for a lifetime. Some harmful habits like biting on pens and pencils or muscle imbalances will cause the teeth to shift after braces or later in life if the retainers are not worn consistently.

If you want an easy way to improve your smile, consider orthodontic treatment. Looking better and feeling good about your smile can improve your self-esteemand promote a positive attitude. A breathtaking smile provides a valuable asset at any age.
