Vivera retainers are made by Invisalign and are used to keep your teeth straight after orthodontic treatment. It takes time, your effort, and orthodontic skill to create a fantastic smile. Once braces are removed it is extremely important that a retainer is worn to ensure the results are maintained. Our aesthetic retainers can safeguard your smile for years to come. Typically, Vivera retainers come as a set of 3. They are custom made from either your ClinCheck® file, a new set of PVS impressions, or an intra-oral scan.
Vivera retainers are made with the same state of the art technology as Invisalign aligners, 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 retainer is very convenient if there have been no changes to the teeth since the last order. Your dentist can simply request Invisalign to produce a new set of Vivera retainers form the previously ordered file.
Studies show that without retention, even perfectly aligned teeth can gradually revert back to their prior-treatment state. Straight teeth are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also help to improve your overall gum health and function because they make routine brushing and flossing easier and more effective.
Teeth retention can also be provided by fixed retainers bonded to the back of the six front teeth. However, fixed retainers still require the patient to wear removable devices such as Vivera or Essix retainers every night to prevent the back teeth from moving.
