Types Of Retainers

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Rho Family Dentistry
Types Of RetainersAlthough you might be getting your braces removed, that is not where your orthodontic treatment ends. Besides, braces removal signals the beginning of the essential part of orthodontic treatment. Retention is a vital phase that helps with holding teeth in their new places. In some instances, it can also help with providing you with other corrections.

The only responsibility you will be needed to be to certain that you stick to the instructions given and you are good to go. A professional orthodontist is all you require to have the retainer placed well and experience the best smile for the rest of your life. Most experts ask their patients to have their retainers for a single night and day. Retainers are available in various types mentioned here.

Permanent Retainers

Patients undergoing other orthodontic corrections may use permanent retainers to hold onto the newly placed teeth. However, these retainers require someone who can maintain the best hygiene habits. Permanent retainers are not meant for every individual because maintaining proper hygiene is not something everyone can do.

Hawley Retainers

This is the type of retainer that has a plastic shell holding the upper part of the mouth and on one tooth with a wire. The good thing about Hawley retainers is that they come in various customs and styles. Also, these retainers are adjustable, which means they can fit everyone, no matter the size of their teeth or jawline.

Essix Retainers

Essix retailers are easy to wear because their clear molded plastic form allows them to slide easily on your teeth. It is not easy to notice someone wearing these retainers, which is why most patients choose them. However, you might require needing to have the retainers replaced from time to time since they easily wear out. Thorough cleaning is a must with these retainers too.
