Retainers

January 03, 2018

After you get your braces off you will also get a set of removable retainers. These retainers will be worn either full time or night time wear only and this will be decided by Dr. Virdee based on each individual patient.

When you first have your braces removed they will take an impression of your teeth. The dental molds will than be used to make casts to fabricate your retainers. These retainers are made using a clear material that hug your teeth.

The Pro’s to this type of retainer is that it looks invisible and most people find it very comfortable to wear.  To keep your retainer clean you can always dip it in mouth wash and clean it with a soft toothbrush. Remember to not clean your retainer in hot weather as this will cause distortion making your retainer no longer fit.
