Retainers

Retainers

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, retainers will be provided to help ensure that your smile and results are long-lasting. The continuing success of your orthodontic treatment depends on your being compliant with this retention phase.

All retainers are custom-made for you, and we offer both acrylic and clear removable retainers and fixed retainer options. If your retainer breaks or becomes loose or damaged at any time, please call our office so it can be adjusted or replaced.

Acrylic Retainers

Acrylic retainers are removable retainers made of stainless steel wires that surround the front teeth and acrylic that covers the roof of your mouth. The metal wires can be adjusted to make minor movements of the front teeth and the acrylic can be customized with fun colors and designs.

Clear Retainers

Clear retainers are also removable and look similar to clear aligners which are made of plastic and cover the teeth entirely. They are almost invisible and therefore offer a more esthetic alternative to acrylic wire retainers.

Clear Retainers

Clear retainers are also removable and look similar to clear aligners which are made of plastic and cover the teeth entirely. They are almost invisible and therefore offer a more esthetic alternative to acrylic wire retainers.

Fixed Retainers

Fixed retainers are permanent and made of a wire bonded to the back of two or more teeth. They are not easily seen and will not alter speech but do require extra attention to remove tartar with flossing.
