Fredericksburg Orthodontics & Invisalign Center offers several types of retainers, such as:
- Traditional retainer – traditional retainers are removable and made from a combination of acrylic and metal. The metal portion of wire retainers wraps around the front side of the teeth to hold their position.
- Clear aligners – these plastic retainers have a smooth and comfortable feeling similar to Invisalign® and hold teeth in their proper position.
- Fixed retainer – a fixed retainer is usually bonded to the lingual side (tongue side) of the six front lower teeth. Patients can wear this permanent retainer for many years.
Fredericksburg Orthodontics & Invisalign Center encourages all patients who have completed orthodontic treatment to diligently wear their retainers to maintain a straight and healthy smile.
