Retention is the final and very important stage of orthodontic treatment. The goal of retention is to preserve your beautiful smile and functional bite for life. Teeth tend to shift and become more crowded throughout lifetime, whether you have had orthodontic treatment or not.

Invisalign is an esthetic alternative to traditional braces that is more hygienic, more comfortable and faster.
