Orthodontic Retainers

Dental Retainers

Upon completion of orthodontic treatment, it’s crucial for patients to wear retainers to maintain the teeth in their new position. Since teeth naturally tend to shift over time, these appliances play a key role in preventing this “shifting back” from occurring.


Clear retainers resemble Invisalign aligners and are transparent trays designed to ensure the teeth remain in place. Crafted from vacuum-formed hard plastic, these retainers effectively prevent shifting by accurately maintaining the teeth’s position.

The primary advantage of clear retainers lies in their aesthetic appeal and composition of clear, BPA-free plastic, rendering them nearly imperceptible. For patients requiring full-day retainer wear, clear retainers offer an excellent solution, eliminating self-consciousness while smiling. Additionally, these retainers are lightweight and do not cover the roof of the mouth, making them easy to adapt to and allowing patients to speak confidently.

The length of time you will have to wear your retainer will depend on your individual treatment needs and the instructions provided by your orthodontist.

Retainers are orthodontic devices used after you finish your treatment with braces. Retainers keep your teeth in their new position and keep your results perfect.

Some people need to wear a retainer all day for 4 months, while others have to wear theirs for 12 months. The amount of time will depend on your individual treatment needs.
