The upper orthodontic retainer is a transparent removable retainer that fits over the entire arch of teeth. Similar to Invisalign® trays, the retainer has no wires. They are inexpensive to replace and are to be worn during the sleeping hours.
Lower Bonded Retainer
Bonded retainers are cemented directly to the inside surface of your lower 6 front teeth. This is one of the best ways to prevent your lower teeth from shifting as it is permanently attached! Patients with bonded lingual retainers must be careful with their bite as the bonding material may break due to incorrect biting and cause teeth to shift quickly. When brushing, make sure to carefully clean the inside of your lower teeth as well as the wire and have regular cleanings at your dentist.
