Your orthodontist will also instruct you on how to properly care for your teeth while you are wearing braces. This may involve a special toothbrush that can fit under or between your braces, and a new brushing technique that you’ll want to employ until your braces are removed.
Once your traditional braces are taken off, you will have a beautiful and perfectly straight smile. You will be given a dental retainer to wear at night to maintain your straight teeth. Not wearing your retainer can result in your teeth falling out of alignment again.
