Questions and Answers with Dr. Susan Podray

Why did my teeth space apart after my braces came off?

Well, teeth tend to space apart after braces, and other orthodontic treatments like Inbrace and clear aligner treatments for 3 main reasons: first, freshly moved teeth are loose and they can shift if you don’t wear your retainers properly. In general, my patients are asked to wear removable Essix retainers for 3 month’s full time then night time for a lifetime unless they also have fixed or permanent retainers. If they have fixed retainers, then they may wear them just at night for life.
