Orthodontic Retainers in Winthrop

Just as we dont want you to hide your smile, we don’t want to hide costs from you. So the good news is at Winthrop Orthodontic Centre, we include one set of removable orthodontic retainers as part of your quote, ensuring no hidden surprises at the end of your treatment.

Removable Retainers vs Fixed Retainers?

After the active phase of orthodontic treatment, which often includes the use of braces or aligners to move teeth into their desired positions, the retainer is employed to maintain those corrected positions.

When it comes to removable retainers, our Specialist Orthodontists might suggest either a Hawley plate retainer or a clear essix (tray) retainer:

We’re all about personalising your orthodontic experience. If you are concerned that you or your child may not wear their retainers we can also offer Fixed Wire Retainers for a small fee. Here are the great benefits of permanent retainers:

  • Often affixed to the back of the six front teeth
  • Can be used alongside a clear plastic essix (tray) retainer
  • Aids in maintaining the position of teeth prone to shifting with age

How often should you wear your retainers?

First 6 months:

Wear full time after your orthodontic treatment wraps up.

Next 6-12 months:

Switch to night time wear during this period.

After 12 months:

Adapt your retainer wear based on your teeth's susceptibility to movement, which can range from every night to 1-2 nights per week.

With options galore and flexibility built in, let’s keep your smile shining bright!
