Retainers Overview

Retainers can be plastic, similar to a clear aligner, or they can be shaped metal wire fixed to a plastic frame. There are also permanent bottom retainers that are small, inconspicuous wires.


The purpose of your retainer is to ensure your teeth do not revert to their original positions after treatment.

How Retainers Work

Your retainer keeps your teeth in their proper alignment once they’ve been corrected by holding them in place every night. They’ll be custom made for you to ensure a comfortable fit and effective use.

What to Expect

You’ll want to wear your retainer every night as you sleep. This keeps your teeth from migrating back to their previous position. If you miss a night or two, you shouldn’t experience any issues when you put your retainer back in. If you go too long without wearing your retainer, you may experience discomfort when you wear it. If this happens it’s a good idea to come in for a check-up!
