Frequently asked questions

Fixed retainers or removable retainers?

Inserting conventional internal wires where glued wires already exist is impossible. Fortunately, there are special wires that can pass under bonded wires. Ultimately, it's up to the orthodontist to choose the most suitable solution.

In terms of collaboration with the patient, it seems more risky to have bonded wires rather than a removable appliance. The question to ask when making a choice is: can you perform the same manipulation for the rest of your life? It's not uncommon to hear people say: "I've been doing orthodontics all my life. Look where I am now.

These words often reveal a misconception about orthodontic work. In fact, there is a misconception that if the orthodontist repositions the teeth correctly, nature will maintain this stability afterwards. In reality, orthodontic treatment is a long-term process, and it is the orthodontist's duty to stress the importance of continuity.

Are retainers as important as treatment?

Performing orthodontic work and still resorting to retention can be disappointing. Some orthodontists even feel that this aspect goes beyond their mission.

The truth is, there's simply no point in aligning teeth if the result doesn't last.
