When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for one year. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.
Vivera® are not your traditional retainers! Lock in that beautiful smile with four sets of clear, virtually invisible retainers, made by aligntech® with the same state-of-the-art technology as invisalign aligners. This product is 30% stronger than other clear retainers, and created by using 3D digital imaging to produce a precise fit and smooth finish that grips the teeth firmly. These retainers will allow life-long maintenance after your braces or invisalign treatment. This retention program is the real deal!
Hawleys are made of an acrylic material that sits on the roof of the mouth with a metal wire that surrounds the front teeth. These retainers are given to our phase I patients in our growth and development program, so we can modify the retainer in an effort to encourage the adult teeth to erupt in an ideal position. If these retainers are worn as instructed, when all permanent teeth have erupted, we will determine if future invisalign or braces are recommended.
