    Highly satisfied from this place. Staff are great, always do a good, quick job. To add to it, they are very energetic and chatty which makes a monthly visit not the end of the world as it is at most offices I've been to. The friendliness and up-going personalities of the staff make it that much better. Great place, I give it 5 stars.

    I highly recommend going to Park City Orthodontics. Both myself and son had braces and the quality of service was excellent. Great staff, top notch equipment, and Dr. Sumsion is of the highest quality when it comes to orthodontists. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Retainer Use

retainerRemovable Retainers

• Wear your retainers according to the doctor’s instructions.

• Take your retainers out when eating, and always put retainers in their case! (Most appliances are lost in school lunchrooms or restaurants.)

• Clean retainers thoroughly once a day with a toothbrush and toothpaste. Use warm but not hot water. Brushing retainers removes the plaque, and eliminates odors. Efferdent® or other orthodontic appliance cleaners can be used, but do not take the place of brushing.

• When retainers are not in your mouth they should ALWAYS be in a retainer case. Pets love to chew on them!

• Initially, you may find it difficult to speak. Practice speaking, reading, or singing out loud to get used to them faster.

• Retainers are breakable, so treat them with care. If retainers are lost or broken call us immediately.

• If you have any questions or concerns about your retainers, or your retainers need adjusting, call us. Do not try to adjust them yourself.

• Always bring your retainers to your appointments.

• Retainer replacement is expensive; with proper care they will last for years!

• Remove retainers when swimming.

• Keep retainers away from hot water, hot car dashboards, pockets, the washing machine, and napkins.

 

“Permanent” Retainers

Sometimes “permanent” retainers can be placed on the inside of teeth. This refers to a wire that is bonded with dental adhesives and can be easily removed without damage or alterations to the teeth. Special care is needed to maintain the bonding and hygiene.

• Flossing is easy from the top and front.

• Extra brushing is needed between the retainer and the gingiva (gums).

• Be careful when trying to thread floss of cleaners under the wire. Over aggression may cause recession of the gingiva.

• If a tooth becomes dislodged from the wire, please call our office to have it re-cemented before a tooth moves.
