One of the options our [dr_type] can use to put the final touch on your smile is an orthodontic positioner. A Positioner covers the upper and lower teeth. It is similar to a retainer in that it helps your teeth to secure themselves in their new positions. You will need to wear it as you sleep, and for a certain amount of time during the day. Every smile is different and Dr. [doctor_name] will instruct you on how long to wear your positioner, and it is important that you stick to those instructions. Dr. [dr_last] will also explain how to clean store your positioner when you are not wearing it.
You may experience a small amount of discomfort as you adjust to wearing it. You should contact Dr. [dr_last] if the pain lasts for more than a few days, but as you get used to wearing your positioner an over-the-counter pain reliever or anti-inflammatory can help. If you damage or lose your positioner, you should contact our offices in West Valley or South Phoenix to schedule an appointment to have a new one made.
If you would like to learn more about positioners in [city], [state], and to find out if it one can be used in your treatment call our offices to plan your visit.
