Fitting Retainers

Removable retainers are fitted following the removal of your fixed appliance. Retainers are clear plastic aligners that you must wear, to ensure your teeth stay in their new position. Retainers are a lifelong commitment and we will never advise that you stop wearing your retainers.

Retainer Check Appointments

We will review your retainers for the first 12 months post active treatment. We then suggest you join our retainer care programme to have your retainers checked annually. However, should you have a problem with your retainers, we advise you make an appointment to see us as soon as possible.
