The only way to maintain long-term orthodontic results after braces or clear aligners is to wear a retainer.
We offer free consultations for new and returning patients alike, so that it's easy for you to explore your options.
For a custom, comfortable retainer, visit Dr. Stuart A. Scott at Scott Orthodontics, serving Mitchellville, Silver Spring, and Bowie, MD.

What Are the Benefits Of Wearing a Retainer?
Protecting Your Results
When patients do not wear their retainers as advised, their teeth can shift. It takes just a minute or two of effort to put in and clean your retainers, making it easy to protect your dental results.
Preventing Future Treatment
After months or years of not wearing your retainer, you may need braces or Invisalign® again — which can be time-consuming and costly. Though we love to see all of our Bowie patients, we don't want you to have to get orthodontic treatment twice.
Improved Dental Health
Retainers can actually help with your dental wellness. By keeping your smile straight, they make it easier for you to properly brush and floss your teeth. With good retainer use, you can improve your dentist's check-ups too.
