Retainers are devices that are used to keep teeth in their desired position after orthodontic treatment. At Lowell Tooth Docs, we offer retainers that are designed to last and keep your teeth from moving. If you had braces in the past or if you have clear aligner therapy, we can help you find the right retainer for you.
Retainers are most typically essix retainers, which are clear plastic and Invisalign-style, but can also be hawley-style retainers which have wires to hold your teeth. Retainers are crucial to holding your smile in place, so it is important to wear them as directed and to clean them regularly. If you’d prefer a permanent retainer that is bonded to the tongue-side of your teeth, we can do that too!
If you have any questions about retainers or would like to learn more about our orthodontic services, please contact us today. We are happy to help you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
