12/19/2017
When we provide you with your first set of Invisalign aligners, it’s safe to assume that you’ll be excited to begin your orthodontic journey toward an incredible new smile!

Retention in Orthodontic Treatment
05/02/2017
Once you’re finished with the active stage of orthodontic treatment, your orthodontist will remove the braces from your teeth to reveal your brand new smile! This is an exciting time, but treatment isn’t completely over just yet. Once your braces are off, the retention phase of your treatment begins when you will be given a retainer to wear to hold your teeth in their new positions. It is very important to wear your retainer as directed by your orthodontist, because if you don’t, your teeth will slowly shift back into their original positions, which would undo all the effort and money you invested in your orthodontic treatment. The team at Doleski & Wolford Orthodontics wants the best treatment results for each of our patients, so that’s why we stress the importance of the retention phase of treatment.
