They are typically made of plastic or metal wires and are worn over the teeth to prevent them from shifting or moving back to their original positions.
We offer both fixed wire and removal plastic retainers. Retainers are generally worn all the time immediately after orthodontic treatment and gradually transitioned to just at night over time.
Retainers are an important part of orthodontic treatment because teeth have a natural tendency to move back to their original positions over time. By wearing retainers, patients can help maintain the results of their orthodontic treatment and ensure that their teeth stay in their new positions.
