Keep your teeth aligned and your smile perfect with our custom-designed retainers. Essential for post-orthodontic treatment maintenance.

After orthodontic treatment, retainers are crucial for maintaining the new position of your teeth and ensuring that your perfect smile lasts a lifetime. At Select Dental Office, we offer high-quality, custom-fitted retainers designed to fit comfortably and effectively maintain the alignment of your teeth.

Why Retainers are Important

Retainers are custom-made devices, typically made of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth. They are most often used after braces, as teeth can shift back towards their original position. Wearing retainers as directed is crucial for:

  • Preventing teeth from gradually shifting back towards their original position.
  • Allowing the bone around the teeth to reform correctly around the repositioned teeth.
  • Helping to maintain a straight, beautiful smile.

Types of Retainers

  • Fixed Retainers: Consist of a thin wire that is permanently bonded behind the bottom or top teeth, hidden from view. They are great for those who do not want to worry about remembering to wear their retainer.
  • Removable Retainers: Made of a combination of plastic and metal, these retainers can be removed for eating and brushing. They are custom-fitted to the teeth.
  • Clear Retainers: These are removable retainers made entirely of transparent plastic, which appear invisible when worn. They are similar in appearance to Invisalign trays.

The Process of Getting Retainers

  1. Impression and Measurement: After your orthodontic treatment is complete, we take an impression of your newly aligned teeth to create a custom retainer.
  2. Fitting: Once your retainer is ready, we will schedule a fitting to ensure that it sits comfortably and securely on your teeth.
  3. Care Instructions: We provide detailed care instructions to help you maintain your retainer and ensure it functions effectively for as long as needed.
