Can Retainers Straighten Teeth Back?

Retainers are used at the end of an orthodontic treatment to ensure your teeth do not suffer an orthodontic relapse. An orthodontic relapse is when your teeth start to move back to their original crooked position. After spending your money and time on straightening your teeth it is vital to protect your investment by wearing your retainers.

Can Retainers Then Be Used To Straighten Relapsed Teeth?

Unfortunately if your teeth have relapsed and started to move back to their original crooked position, then retainers will not be able to move them back to a straight position, as retainers have been designed to retain teeth in their straightened position.

How Can I Stop My Teeth From Relapsing?

At our clinic we offer both bonded and removable retainers to have at the end of our orthodontic treatments. The bonded retainers are a permanent retainer at the backs of the teeth so they are hidden and completely discrete, but will always be in place to hold your teeth. The removable retainers are an added extra form of protection that we recommend to our patients to wear at night time.

Help, My Tooth Are Crooked Again!

If your teeth have unfortunately moved back to a crooked position again, we would recommend you book a free consultation so we can examine your teeth and discuss suitable options to straighten your teeth again. The longer your teeth are left relapsing, the longer it can take to re-correct your teeth, which can also increase the price of straightening your teeth.

What Braces Can Be Used To Straighten My Teeth?

We offer an extensive range of braces that can be used to straighten your teeth. Depending on your exact case, the most suitable brace will vary. Some of the braces we offer include:

6 Month Braces
Damon Braces
Lingual Braces
and many more

If you are interested in finding out your options, please do not hesitate to call us and book your free consultation.
