What are removable retainers?

After braces, your teeth may naturally shift back into their original position. A retainer prevents treatment reversal and ensures your teeth stay in their new, proper alignment. These orthodontic devices come in two primary types — permanent and removable.

What to expect with removable retainers

Clear plastic retainers are thin, comfortable, and easy to remove when eating or drinking. Dr. Black will custom-fit a retainer for you and give you all the information you need to keep your smile in place. Plus, your upfront treatment cost includes one retainer set and covers all office visits for a whole year past your date of completion.

Get the most out of removable retainer treatment

The best way to keep your teeth from shifting is to wear your retainer consistently. Since your teeth naturally want to move out of position, wearing your retainer as directed is crucial to protect your investment.

It’s normal to experience some soreness in the first few days after your braces come off. Your irritation will fade as you continue to wear your retainer.
