At the end of your KiyoClear treatment your doctor may recommend a bonded retainer to hold your teeth in place.
Bonded retainers are small wires that are bent to conform to the shape of the backside (lingual) side of your teeth and held in place with dental composite. Bonded retainers are popular because they hold your teeth in place without you having to do anything.
After orthodontic treatment you are prone to relapse, your teeth migrating back to their old positions. This is especially true during the first three months. Your periodontal ligament is elastic and may want to “snap back” into its old position. The way to stop this from happening is to use either a bonded retainer or a removable retainer to hold your teeth in place while the periodontal ligament remodels.
