Why do Teeth Shift Once Braces are Removed?

If a dentist or orthodontist has recently removed your braces, you might feel a sensation as if your teeth are moving. Do not be alarmed, for minor adjustments are commonplace and they are generally no cause for alarm. However, this is why it is very important to wear your retainer.

Retainers act as removable “guides” which will help to keep your pearly whites aligned correctly as they find their permanent positions. Let us look briefly at some other suggestions to adopt after wearing braces.

– Always follow the recommendations provided by your orthodontist.

– If you feel major shifts within your mouth, immediately tell your doctor.
