Essix Clear Retainer
Essix removable retainers are made of transparent plastic. This type of retainer lasts about 2-3 years or more and is a more affordable replacement option. If you were a patient of Dr. Black, then the total Essix retainer cost is included in your treatment fee. If you need a replacement, then you will need to pay $175 per arch. Non-patients can expect fees ranging from $400-500.
Vivera removable retainers are made of clear, durable material that is 30% stronger than its plastic counterparts. Vivera clear retainers cost $750. That cost also includes an in-house aligner, so you get five sets of retainers.
