An adult Retainer: The final step in your orthodontic journey
You might think your orthodontic treatment is finished once you no longer have to wear braces or aligners. However, your treatment isn’t complete without a good retention plan and custom-made dental retainer. This is ant important part of your orthodontic treatment, as it ensures that once your teeth have been straightened, they have the needed support to remain straight.
After your braces or Invisalign treatment, the tissue in your jaw will take a little while to settle down as blood will have been constricted to tissue during the time you had your braces on. If you don’t wear a dental retainer, your teeth can begin to move back into their original positions, undoing all the hard work that has been done to straighten them.
But don’t worry! At Clear Smiles Orthodontics, we offer a range of cheap retainers for adults, ensuring that your smile stays straight and healthy following your orthodontic treatment.
Painless retainers for adults
We offer a number of different adult retainer solutions. Most of our patients choose a removable retainer made of clear plastic. However, we also offer a fixed retainer, which is made of wire and fastened to the back of your teeth, keeping them in place without requiring you to insert your retainer.
Following your treatment, you will initially have to wear a retainer all the time, but after a few months it is only needed at night. Since you’ve already completed a treatment plan and your teeth have moved into an ideal position, your retainer experience isn’t likely to cause discomfort. The hard work is over!
Our orthodontists will assess you and work out the best plan for you every step of the way, including this all-important final step and the follow-up maintenance check-ups. And, as this is such an important part of your journey towards a straight, healthy smile, the cost of your dental retainer is included in the quote we give you for your overall treatment plan!
