Wadler and Wadler-Bloome will provide—or have provided you—with retainers. After your braces come off, teeth may shift out of position if they are not stabilized. Retainers, Dr. Wadler will tell you, always provide that stabilization. They are designed to hold teeth in their corrected, ideal positions until the bones and gums adapt to the treatment changes. Wearing retainers exactly as instructed by our doctors and staff is the best insurance that the treatment improvements last for a lifetime.

To learn more about the advantages of wearing retainers after your treatment at our office, please read this helpful article about retainers from KidsHealth.
