Abstract :

Over the past two decades, though the standards for retention have remained the same, the modalities to achieve it have undergone numerous changes. Retention maintains the teeth in their orthodontically corrected positions after the cessation of active tooth movement. The teeth have a tendency to return to their original position under the influence of periodontal, occlusal and soft tissue forces and continued dentofacial growth. Several authors have discussed the role of conventional retainers however much research has been conducted to experiment biological agents to aid in retention. Some of them are Osteoprotegerin, Bone Morphogenic Proteins, Bisphosphonates, Strontium, Low Level Laser Therapy and mechanical viation
