One thought on “What Can I Expect 12 Months After Braces?

  1. Arti says:

    Your teeth are partly held in place by surrounding jawbone. During orthodontic treatment, your jawbone would have softened or disappeared (a process called resorption) so teeth could move into their final positions. (We promise we’re not trying to torture you. Once you have your braces removed, we can understand the reluctance you may feel to wear yet another oral appliance. ) However, it’s important that you wear your retainer as directed by our orthodontists. Otherwise, your teeth will gradually shift to their original positions.
