Retention phase is crucial after all forms of active orthodontic treatment for the following rationale: (1) to enable time for the gingival and periodontal tissues to reorganize after orthodontic treatment, (two) following tooth movement, the teeth may be in unstable condition which can relapse due to presence of soft tissue pressures, (3) growth modifications might alter orthodontic remedy results and (four) permit for neuromuscular adaptation to the new tooth position.
For post remedy stability, there should be gradual withdrawal of orthodontic manage pf tooth movement and occlusal relationships. The type of retainer is important and must as a result be incorporated in the treatment plan. Retainer can either be fixed or removable and each and every has distinct treatment indications. An instance of a fixed retainer is the bonded cuspid to cuspid retainer and examples of the removable retainers are the Hawley Retainers and Wraparound Retainers.
