After the treatment, the person’s health status and the development of the treatment are examined. If orthodontic treatment gives positive results within the prescribed time, reinforcement treatment can be started. Reinforcement treatment is done with a transparent plaque called retainer. After orthodontic treatment, a reinforcement treatment is started to reduce and eliminate the tendency of the teeth to return to their former state. The person must come to the doctor’s controls every six months. In this way, the problems that may arise in the process can be intervened quickly.

During this period, the person should follow the recommendations given by the doctor, pay attention to oral and dental health and come to the treatment regularly. In addition, if a negative result is obtained, it may be necessary to wear a transparent palate or apparatus. If the orthodontic treatment has given positive results in the prescribed time, the treatment period can be completed.

After the treatment is completed, it is necessary to come to the doctor’s control at regular intervals and not to disrupt oral and dental care. If problems arise again after the treatment is over, the doctor should be contacted. Since orthodontic treatment is a sensitive and challenging process, this sensitivity may continue after the treatment. Therefore, it is very important to take the necessary precautions after treatment.
