Wearing teeth retainers is a crucial part of the orthodontic process. Many people do not realise the importance of it for maintaining a straight smile. Often, when the main brace is removed and the teeth are straight, people will not see the need to wear their retainer. However, if the retainer is not worn as instructed the teeth are likely to revert back to their original positions.
Here at Pearl Dental Clinic, we offer various retainers that will give different aesthetical looks. First of all, we offer the Hawley Retainer. This is what most people would envisage when thinking of a retainer. This style of retainer consists of a plastic palette which has metal wires attached. These grip the teeth and hold them in place. Secondly, we offer fixed retainers. These are attached to the back of the teeth and are not removable. Fixed retainers are often seen as a good option due to the fact that they are permanently in place. A drawback of these retainers is, however, that they are not suitable for everyone. Your orthodontist will need to investigate your bite pattern before these can be recommended. Lastly, the Vivera Retainer is available. These are made by the popular company Invisalign. The Vivera is a clear plastic retainer that is practically invisible.
