Custom orthodontic retainers
Once you have completed your orthodontic treatment, it’s important to set that new, healthy smile for life. At Melton Orthodontics, we custom create professional and comfortable retainers to help hold your teeth in place. We have several types of long-term retainers, and your Specialist Orthodontist will help you decide which one is best for your teeth and your lifestyle.
The Vivera retainer is the perfect follow-on from Invisalign® and is designed to prevent your teeth from shifting over time. This retainer is clear, maintaining your subtle treatment nature and boasts durability and strength, meaning you can count on the Vivera retainer to keep your smile straight for years to come.
A bonded retainer is a thin piece of wire that is attached permanently to the back of the teeth after treatment. It isn't visible when you smile, though you will be able to feel it with your tongue.
Generally, a bonded retainer spans the back of 4-6 front teeth. Once you have become used to it, it is likely you’ll forget that it's there. The benefit of a bonded retainer is that you can’t lose it, and there is very little upkeep, other than cleaning it in the same way you clean your teeth.
Essix retainers are another form of clear removable retainer. They are designed to fit your specific teeth and bite, and are typically worn for a year or more after treatment. When the time comes, your Specialist Orthodontist can give you more information and help you decide which retainer suits you best.
