Beautiful teeth for the rest of your life

Here at Aloha Dental, we are dedicated to retention, the final step in your Orthodontic treatment.


After you have worn your braces or Invisalign for the appropriate amount of time, we move into the retention stage of your treatment. It is very important not to skip this step or all of your hard work will not pay off as you had hoped. Your teeth may shift instead of staying in place.

During retention, you will have to wear retainers as your teeth adjust to staying in their new place without braces. You should wear your retainers as recommended by your dentist. Some can be worn only at night, while others need to be worn almost all of the time.


It is really important that you continue to brush your teeth while you are in this stage. All you have to do is remove your retainer, and then you will be able to brush your teeth better than you were able to when you had braces. You should also brush your retainer before placing it back to your mouth.

FAQ – Retainers

How to clean retainers?

Bacteria, plaque and tartar can build up on your retainer, thus exposing your teeth to more bacteria. It is thus important that you follow your dentist's instructions to wash, soak and possibly brush the retainers on a daily basis.

Is it difficult to speak with retainers?

It might feel uncomfortable having the retainers on for the first few days. In particular, an increase in saliva production is to be expected. However, over time, natural adjustments will be made, making for more comfortable wearability.
