Introduction

Once the orthodontic retention phase is complete, a number of patients return to the office following retainer detachment or complaining about the stability of the result. The aim of this study was to search for predictors of re-consultation and to evaluate how the choice of retainer impacts re-consultation for misalignment or debonding.
