Types of retainers
As with braces, we have a selection of different retainer treatments to reflect your individual requirements.
Vacuum formed - Commonly known as ‘clear retainers’, vacuum formed retainers are discreet, clear, removable retainers that are custom-made to fit you perfectly. Your orthodontist will advise you on how often to wear your removable retainers, which in most cases is only at night.
Fixed - A fixed retainer is a small metal wire glued to the back of your teeth to hold them in their new position. This non-removable retainer is unobtrusive, and you’ll quickly forget it’s there. We’ll show you how to care for your fixed retainer, and give you Superfloss™ to keep it clean.
