Once we remove your braces the retention phase of your treatment starts. Maintaining the results you achieved during active treatment is key to the success of the entire orthodontic process. Your retention phase of treatment will last for 18 months, although retention is a lifetime commitment.  Your final orthodontic result depends on good retention, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far.

Hawley Retainers

Hawley_retainerThe Hawley retainer, one of the most common types, is a removable retainer made of a combination of metal wires and sturdy acrylic. This retainer is specially made from impressions of your teeth so that it fits snugly and comfortably in your mouth.  The acrylic can also be personalized with a large number of colors and/or patterns.

Fixed Retainers

As with removable retainers, it is important to keep them clean. When brushing, carefully clean the inside of your teeth as well as the wire. If your retainer breaks at any time during the retention phase, please do not adjust it yourself. Call us immediately to schedule an emergency appointment.

Essix Retainer

essixThe Essix retainer is a clear removable retainer that fits over the entire arch of teeth. Essix retainers have no metal wires and are virtually invisible. They are very durable, inexpensive and easy to wear.
