Cheap & Painless Dental Retainers | Clear Smiles Orthodontics

Retaining your beautiful smile

Wearing braces or a clear aligner is just part of your orthodontic treatment journey. To really be rewarded for your commitment to your treatment you need to spend time wearing a retainer to ensure your new smile stays as we’ve created it. 

What is a retainer?

A retainer looks a bit like a clear aligner and sits over your teeth, keeping them in their newly straightened position until the tissue in your jaw has settled down after treatment. Initially, you’ll be required to wear your retainer day and night, but after several months you’ll only need to wear it at night. 

At Clear Smiles we can also fit our patients with a fixed retainer, a small wire that is fitted to the back of your teeth and holds them in position.

Retainers

The most important phase of treatment

Retainers are often deemed the most important phase of orthodontic treatment because if you don’t wear them your teeth could slip back into their original position, undoing all of your – and our – hard work. 

Your retainer is part of your overall treatment journey so is included in your customised treatment quote.

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!
