Vivera retainers are made by Invisalign. This removable retainer keeps your teeth straight after orthodontic treatment. Following the completion of orthodontic treatment, it is extremely important to use a retainer every-night to keep your teeth in their straight position.
Vivera retainers are made with the same state of the art technology as Invisalign aligners. This involves using 3D digital imaging, proprietary thermoplastic material, and advanced fabrication technology. This creates a strong retainer with an extremely precise fit and a smooth finish that grips firmly and feels comfortable.
Re-ordering the Vivera retainers is very convenient if there have been no changes to the teeth since the last order. We can simply request Invisalign to produce a new set of Vivera retainers form the previously saved file.
Vivera retainers always come in sets of 3 retainers, EITHER 3 sets of upper retainers and 3 sets of lower retainers OR 3 sets of upper retainers OR 3 sets of lower retainers.
Studies show that without retention, even perfectly aligned teeth can gradually revert back to their prior positions.
Teeth retention can also be provided by fixed retainers bonded to the back of the front six teeth. However, fixed retainers only hold the front incisor and canine teeth and still require the patient to wear removable retainers such as Vivera retainers every night to prevent the back premolar and molar teeth from moving.
Pearl Dental Clinic is one of few clinics in UK that Provide Vivera retainers using the Invisalign iTero digital scanning system rather than using traditional impressions and moulds.
The Invisalign iTero handheld wand takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth, preventing the need for traditional impressions which can cause some patients to gag. You can look at the iTero 3D image of your teeth on the screen in real-time.
Rather than posting impressions to the lab to be scanned which could take weeks, the digital image is electronically sent to the Invisalign lab immediately.
The accuracy and detail of the iTero digital scans vs traditional teeth impressions is kind of like watching high definition TV over standard definition TV.
These digital scans don’t need to be rescanned so by removing the “clay modelling step” we have greatly improved the accuracy and speed of your treatment.
Invisalign Vivera retainers cost £350 for three sets of Vivera retainers.
