Just as important as the braces themselves!
Retainers are used once treatment is complete.
Your retainers will be made from an impression that is taken of your teeth once your braces are removed. After their fabrication they will be fitted and instructions explained about their importance.
How to wear retainers
What are your options?
There are two types of retainers:
Removable Clear Retainer
Lingual Bonded Wire
If retainers are lost or broken you should contact the practice as soon as possible to make an appointment to have new ones made. Your first set of retainers is included in the overall treatment fee but subsequent ones will incur an extra charge. It is the patients' responsibility to wear retainers and maintain their orthodontic result.
