Retainers in Thornton

“Retainers are vital for maintaining a straight smile.  Why?  When your Invisalign® or Braces are first removed your teeth will have a tendency to drift back towards their original positions (orthodontic relapse).  We use advanced technologies to make your retainers right here at the office.  This ensures higher quality and quicker turnaround times for you and your family.  Give us a call today to learn more.” Dr. Stoll

Fixed Retainers

Fixed retainers consist of thin wires, which are discreetly bonded behind your front teeth to hold them in place. They’re very unobtrusive and designed for long-term wear to ensure long-term results.

Your fixed retainers should be worn indefinitely and will require very little maintenance. Just make sure you clean around them carefully using special floss or an interdental brush. You should also see your dentist for regular dental health checks and hygienist appointments.

Removable Retainers

Removable retainers are custom-made to fit your teeth in their new positions. You won’t need to wear your removable retainers day and night, but it’s important to wear them regularly as instructed by your clinician.

You’ll need to keep your retainers clean by gently brushing them with your toothbrush (without toothpaste) and rinsing them with water after use. We can provide retainer cleaning tablets for a more thorough clean. When you’re not wearing them, keep your retainers safe in a protective box. For extra peace of mind we can arrange to have a spare set made for you.
