You are near the end of your orthodontic journey and about to reveal your perfect smile!
Now it’s time for us to talk about the next part of your “journey”, retainers.
A few quick notes:
- You will get an upper retainer that is clear and removable and a lower retainer that is fixed behind the teeth and permanent.
- Your removable retainer is expected to be worn 24/7 for the first 4-6 weeks after your braces are removed.
- After the initial month, we recommend wearing your retainer “night time for a lifetime“. Or at least as long as your want straight teeth 😉
Easy peasy. Wear your retainers, keep your smile shining.
Unfortunately, retainers can be lost, misplaced, thrown away, broken, or (our fav) eaten by the dog.
We do offer replacement retainers for $225 EACH
If you would like, at your debond appointment, we can do a retainer scan.
What this means is that you will get TWO removable retainers and a printed model of your teeth, in addition to your retainers already included with treatment.
A retainer scan is $295, it saves you two office visits for lost retainers, and you will have a model of your teeth that we can make any additional retainers off of for a discounted price as long as you have the model.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask any member of our team!
