Treatment & Care
This appliances are an easy and quick way to correct minor crowding and rotation or relapse from previous orthodontic treatment. All spring retainers are pre-set in the lab to an ideal alignment of the “anterior 4” or “social 6” teeth. As soon as the retainer is inserted the acrylic & springs begin to guide the teeth into position. Patient will begin to see results in just a few weeks. The spring retainer can then be used as retention to prevent future relapse.
Four-week appointment intervals are recommended. At each appointment, appliance fit should be evaluated, and orthodontic correction monitored. Interproximal reduction, as well as appliance adjustment, may be necessary. Patients should wear 22 hours a day and clean daily with toothpaste to prevent the buildup of plaque and odor. Avoid Efferdent and other effervescent solutions, as it may erode components on the appliance.
