Post-treatment care for a long-lasting smile

Retention care is a vital part of making sure your teeth don’t move after your treatment.

At ethos, all our orthodontists are highly trained in this area, because great retention = great results.

For this reason, we provide a high-quality titanium alloy retainer that is fixed in place permanently to prevent teeth moving – all included in the cost.

In fact, all follow up retention care for up to 5 years is built into the original quote, including complimentary checkups. Usually, your first follow up appointment is 8 weeks after your Invisalign or braces are removed.

For ethos lite customers, check-ups are not scheduled, but take place on an as-needs basis. You are in charge of monitoring your smile, and your retainer, and if anything seems out of the ordinary please call us. All follow-up consultations are still included in the ethos lite cost, so there are no nasty surprises.

Here to help with post-treatment care

At the conclusion of your treatment, an oral health therapist will give you some guidance about how to care for your new smile. It’s important you follow these instructions.

They’ll also be happy to recommend a trusted dental partner in your local area if you haven’t got one already. Seeing a dentist on a regular basis is still the best way to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
