For minor dental imperfections such as an overbite or an under bite, sometimes expensive and lengthy orthodontic treatment can be avoided by the use of a basic Dental Retainer. Properly fitted by a dentist and proper use by the patient can quickly and painlessly adjust your bite and lead to an improved appearance and a more comfortable and healthy mouth as the years go by.
Dental retainers are custom-fitted and are either worn all day or just at night, depending upon the patient. X-rays and a comprehensive exam determine if a retainer is a good option, or if you need to be referred to an orthodontist.
