Fixed retainers are often used to provide orthodontic retention and avoid relapse.
Retainers help maintain and stabilize the position of teeth long enough to permit reorganization of the teeth after the orthodontic therapy. They are an ideal alternative if you don’t want to wear a removable retainer at night following teeth realignment. If the patient does not wear the retainer appropriately or for the right amount of time – the teeth may move towards their previous position.
Benefits of fixed retainers:
- they stay in your mouth 24/7
- keep your teeth in perfect position
- small and very comfortable
