How long should I wear the retainer after orthodontic treatm

Core tip:Orthodontics is getting popular. One of the concerned questions is that how long I should wear retainer after orthodontic treatment.

    Nowadays more and more people want to have neat and white teeth for a beautiful smile. So orthodontics is getting popular. People would like to know more about orthodontics. One of the concerned questions is that how long I should wear retainer after orthodontic treatment.


    In general, people need to wear the retainer for about two years, but the time varies from person to person. For some cases, the time required for maintenance is shorter, while for some cases that are prone to relapse, such as having severe tooth torsion and tooth space, longer retention period or even lifelong maintenance is required.

    Generally speaking, it takes at least one year for the tissue around the teeth to return to stability, and the first three months after treatment are particularly prone to relapse. At present, in the first year of removing the appliance, the retainer should be worn carefully during the day and night. After that, you should change to wear the retainer at night for 6 months. If you feel comfortable to wear it, you can gradually reduce the  time of wearing the retainer: one night every other day, one night a week, until you stop wearing it completely.
