  • How often should I wear my retainer?

    Your orthodontist will provide specific instructions, but most patients are advised to wear their retainer full-time initially and then transition to nighttime wear.

  • What types of retainers are available?

    • Hawley Retainer: This traditional retainer features a metal wire that wraps around the front of your teeth, anchored by an acrylic arch that fits snugly against the roof or floor of your mouth. The metal wire can be adjusted by your orthodontist to maintain the position of your teeth.
    • Essix Retainer: Popular for its aesthetic appeal, the Essix retainer is made from clear PVC material that fits over your entire arch. This vacuum-formed retainer is created from a mold of your newly aligned teeth, making it nearly invisible and comfortable to wear.
    • Fixed Retainer: Also known as a bonded retainer, this type is permanently attached to the tongue side of your teeth. Typically used when teeth have undergone significant movement, the fixed retainer consists of a thin wire that keeps your teeth from shifting back to their previous positions.
  • How do I care for my retainer?

    Clean your retainer daily with a soft toothbrush and mild soap. Avoid using hot water, which can warp the retainer, and keep it in a protective case when not in use.
