When the team at Mary Cay Koen Orthodontics in Goodlettsville, TN removes your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. We actively monitor your retainer wearing for 12 months after the removal of your braces. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before eating, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth. Feel free to call with any questions, or for more retention information.
