When orthodontic work is complete it is important to continue to wear retainer braces. When teeth have moved into the optimum position and the straightening appliance is removed the teeth can easily start to move back. Due to this an orthodontist will provide a specially made retainer to keep the teeth in the same place. Many people fail to follow the exact advice of their orthodontist after their brace is removed. As a result of this, their teeth do not stay straight and often revert back to their original positions.
Pearl Dental Clinic offer a range of retainer braces to ensure that teeth stay in their straight position. Each retainer offers a different type of benefit.
Hawley retainer: This is a very traditional type of retainer. It consists of a plastic palette and metal fixtures that fit around the teeth to hold them in position. This type of retainer is extremely robust, however, the palette can impede speech in the beginning.
Vivera retainer: Made by Invisalign, this retainer is virtually invisible. It looks exactly like Invisalign. As well as being very discreet this retainer does not have a palette, therefore, speech is unhindered.
Fixed retainers: The fixed retainer is attached to the back of the teeth. Due to the placement of the retainer, no one will know it is there, however, not everyone is a suitable candidate.
