Maintain your new smile with retainers
Importance of retention
Studies show that without retention even aligned teeth can gradually revert back towards their initial position. This is a very common problem with all orthodontic treatments, but it is one that can easily be overcome.
Clear Plastic Essix retainers
At the end of your orthodontic treatment you will be provided with a retainer which may be a removable brace, a fixed retainer or a combination of both.
A removable retainer needs to be worn for 2 days full time, then every night in bed for at least a year and after this at least 3 nights per week long term. This will prevent the teeth moving back to their original position.
Upper Fixed Retainer
A fixed retainer is a wire cemented to the back of the upper or lower teeth. Fixed retainers are left on indefinitely unless they break or cause damage to the teeth or gums.
