“Ortho retainers hold your teeth in their current position and prevent them from becoming crooked or drifting apart. Wearing orthodontic retainers is a must if you’ve recently undergone braces or clear aligner treatment. You must wear your retainers as soon as you finish your orthodontic treatment. There are two basic types of removable retainers to consider from:
- Clear retainers (Essix retainers): These retainers look similar to clear aligners but are stiffer than your aligners
- Hawley retainers: These retainers are made from resin and have a wire that holds your teeth in place
Each type of retainer has its own benefits and drawbacks. Essix retainers are more comfortable to wear and they are less visible in your mouth. However, they lose their effectiveness over time and need to be replaced every couple of years. Hawley retainers are more difficult to wear and they may interfere with your speech. However, Hawley retainers are more durable and they typically don’t need to be replaced so long as you don’t damage or lose them. Your dentist will help you decide which type of retainer is best for your needs. Stop slacking off until your teeth move and you need braces/clear aligners again! Purchase this voucher for one orthodontic retainer (buy twice if you need top and bottom set) and stop your teeth from wandering all over the place. Be sure to wear your retainers daily as instructed by your dentist. Replace your retainers once they lose their effectiveness. If your retainers start to feel loose then it’s probably time to replace them.”
