At Gardena Orthodontics, we have got you covered. Our custom-fit retainers are crafted from high quality materials and designed to fit precisely over your teeth. Your smile will stay as straight as it was on your first day after treatment!
What Are Orthodontic Retainers?
Retainers are recommended by orthodontists for patients who have just had their braces removed. Typically, a retainer fits snugly around the teeth and has a molded plastic center for support. They are designed to hold teeth in position so they will not shift crookedly in the mouth.
Retainers are removable and generally worn at night while you sleep, although it’s possible that you may need to wear them more often.
Why Should I Use A Retainer?
When you’ve just spent time and money on braces to straighten and space your teeth evenly, you don’t want all of your good work to be undone once your braces are removed. That’s why retainers are so beneficial. They help to:
- Gently hold your teeth in a straight, even position
- Prevent teeth from shifting crookedly or haphazardly
Because retainers are removable, they are easy to care for, and they allow you to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Gardena Orthodontics offer retainers in many fun colors and designs, so you can customize yours to match your personal style.
How Are Retainers Made?
When you come in for your initial appointment, Dr. Hamid Barkhordar will consult with you so he can develop a personalized care plan just for your mouth. We’ll take pictures and X-rays of your teeth to help us determine a custom fit for your retainer. We craft the retainer using a sophisticated process and quality components.
When your retainer is ready, we’ll invite you back into the office so Dr. Barkhordar can fit it and make any necessary adjustments. We want to ensure that the fit is precise but not so tight that you feel uncomfortable wearing it. We provide instructions on when to wear the retainer and for how long. We will also schedule a number of follow-up visits so we can check your retainer and make sure the fit it still correct and it is performing as it should be.
