Can You Use Retainers To Straighten Teeth?

Retainers are devices that are used to hold dentures in place and allow the user to eat, speak and chew normally. They can be made of plastic, metal, or composite materials. Some retainers can be adjusted so that they fit a range of teeth.

Retainers can also help you straighten your teeth. This is because they keep the teeth from moving out of position, which can cause problems with chewing and speaking. Retainers are available in different sizes and come in different colors, shapes, and styles.

To use a retainer to straighten your teeth:

Place the retainer on top of each tooth in your mouth. The rubber surface will help to hold the teeth in place while you eat or speak or chew gum or food. Some retainers have hooks that attach them to some types of prosthetics (false teeth). These hooks are usually placed behind front teeth only because they’re most likely to get knocked out of position when talking.

Make sure that none of your front teeth touch any part of the retainer except where it connects with another tooth in your mouth; this will keep them from getting pushed down by food or liquids during eating or speaking.
