Retention is of paramount importance in any orthodontic treatment. I provide the highest-quality retainers at the end of the orthodontic treatment to ensure optimal retention.
My standard protocol for ensuring maximum stability of the orthodontic outcome is providing patients with upper and lower clear thermoplastic vacuum formed retainers along with upper and lower fixed bonded retainer wires. The fixed retainers in upper and lower arches typically bond on the front six teeth and extend from the left canine to the right canine.
The fixed retainer wire I typically provide is a customised laboratory made multi-strand stainless steel wire. As the retainer is bonded on the inside surfaces of the upper and lower front teeth, it is unnoticeable to anyone other than a dentist during a check-up.
