What are Retainers?

A retainer refers to an orthodontic appliance that is designed to help the teeth “retain” their current position in the mouth. As the teeth settle into the soft tissue and jawbone that keep them in place, they are prone to shifting over time. Retainers prevent the movement of the teeth as a patient ages. A retainer can be made of wire and plastic or just solid plastic. A retainer is custom-made to perfectly fit the mouth and teeth of the patient. A retainer made from solid plastic is usually completely clear, but it will also likely be more expensive. A retainer can be worn over the teeth or behind the teeth, depending on the type.


When Do I Need Retainers?

Patients need to wear a retainer after removing their braces to protect their orthodontic investment. After spending a few years and thousands of dollars to straighten your teeth, the last thing you want is to deal with crooked teeth again. Some patients will need to wear their retainer full-time while others only need to wear it part-time. Retainers can be permanent or removable. The optimal type for a patient differs from case to case. In some cases, a patient may only wear their retainer during the day or at night.
