Retainers

Maintain the success of your orthodontic treatment.

Retainers

Removable retainers are clear, thin, slightly flexible, and made of a plastic-like material. They fit the exact shape and placement of the teeth.

Not only are there removable retainers, but there are fixed ones. Both types hold teeth in their new positions after “active” orthodontic treatment is completed. This allows newly formed bone to harden around the teeth. Maintaining a strong home-care regimen is the key to maintaining the success of orthodontic treatment. Patients may be advised to wear their appliance full-time for the first six months after “active” orthodontic treatment ends, with subsequent wear time reduced to night-time only. When not in the mouth they should be kept in the storage case provided by our doctors.
