Get the Right Retainer to Make Sure Your Smile Stays Gorgeous

There are various retainer options. Our team will help you select the one that is best suited to your smile. The two basic types are:

  • Fixed Retainers – This type of retainer is placed and can only be removed by an orthodontist. It’s a great choice for patients who might be tempted not to follow the recommended schedule for wearing a removable retainer. Since it is bonded to the tongue side of your teeth, it isn’t visible to others.
  • Removable Retainers – There are several different types of removable retainers, including virtually invisible clear trays.

Keep Your Retainer in Good Shape With Proper Care

Good oral hygiene, including daily brushing and flossing, is the best way to keep a fixed retainer in good condition. To get years of wear out of a removable retainer, you should:

  • Never put a retainer in your purse or pocket without a protective case. When it’s not in your mouth, it should always be in a case.
  • Keep retainers out of direct sunlight and don’t expose them to high temperatures, such as in a hot vehicle.
  • Clean your retainer every day with non-abrasive toothpaste and a soft-bristled brush.
  • Bring your retainer with you to dental exams. We’ll make sure it is in good shape.
