What retainers do we offer?
Your clear, removable retainers will be custom made to closely hug your teeth and stop them from moving. Your orthodontist will tell you when to wear your retainers. Eventually, most patients only need to wear their removable retainers at night. Think of them as pyjamas for your teeth. We’ll give you all the information you need to look after your retainers. When they’re not in your mouth, keep them safe in their protective box.
Fixed retainers comprise of thin, stainless steel wires, which we attach behind your front teeth for extra protection against orthodontic relapse. We’ll fit your fixed retainers when we remove your braces. They may feel a little strange at first, but you’ll quickly forget they’re there. They’re incredibly easy to look after. Just make sure you brush around them carefully to keep them clean.
