Invisible Retainers

We offer the Essix™ type of retainer for our patients. This clear plastic is esthetically pleasing, since it does not require any of the metal wires or clasps of conventional retainers. The material has excellent flex memory and its snap-in fit ensures that your straight teeth will remain that way – as long as you wear it as directed!

Bonded Retainers

For lower retention, we generally use a fixed wire retainer on the back of the lower teeth.

If your bonded retainer should become loose from one or two teeth, please call our office so we can replace the bonding material. If the wire is bent or poking and you cannot get into see us, try pulling off the wire entirely and follow up with our office.
