Vivera retainers are made by Invisalign. This device is used to keep your teeth straight after orthodontic treatment. It takes time, your effort, and orthodontic skill to create a fantastic smile. Following the removal of an orthodontic appliance, it is extremely important to use a retainer to keep the teeth in their straight position. Our aesthetic retainers can safeguard your smile for years to come. Vivera retainers come as a set of 3 retainers.
Vivera 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 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 positions. Straight teeth are not only aesthetically pleasing but also help to improve your overall gum health and function. This is because they make routine brushing and flossing much 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.
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.
At Pearl Dental Clinic, Invisalign Vivera retainers cost £350 for three sets of Vivera retainers.
