Retainers

Once you finish treatment with braces or Invisalign® clear aligners, we will fit you with a retainer. Retainers prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original positions - so you can enjoy your smile results for years to come.

Types of retainers

Retention is the most important phase of your orthodontic journey. That’s why we use two different types of retainers, to ensure we can recommend the best one for you.

 Types of retainers

Removable retainers

Removable retainers are made from clear plastic and look a bit like Invisalign® aligners. You can take them out to eat, brush and floss, but should wear them day and night for at least the first three months. Your Specialist Orthodontist will advise you when you can switch to solely nighttime use.

Fixed retainers

A fixed retainer is a thin wire attached to the back of your teeth. The wire will hold your teeth in their proper positions - and you probably won’t even notice it’s there. If you get fitted for a fixed retainer, we’ll give you our top tips to keep your teeth clean and healthy while wearing it.
