What Are Retainers?

Retainers are used after your braces are removed and are typically the final stage in your orthodontics regimen. These custom-fit devices, made out of plastic or wire, keep your teeth in place while your gums become adjusted to the changes in your bone structure. Retainers are a key component in protecting all of the hard work performed by your braces.

At Winning Smiles Orthodontics we know how important retainers are when it comes to correcting various dental issues. He and his staff at Winning Smiles Orthodontics have helped patients with retainers throughout the region, including individuals from Bowie, MD; Hyattsville, MD; Prince George’s County; Montgomery County; and Anne Arundel County.

What Are the Different Kinds of Retainers?

Your final orthodontic result will depend on your retainer. At Winning Smiles Orthodontics, we offer retainers in a variety of different colors to our patients. In addition, retainers are generally available in two types:

  • Removable: These kinds of retainers may be made of a clear plastic that is molded to fit around the teeth. Removable retainers are also made with metal wires that go around the outside of the teeth.

  • Fixed: This type of retainer contains thin wires that are bonded to the teeth. Fixed retainers are usually recommended when the orthodontic treatment resulted in a major change to the patient’s bite or when there is a high risk for reversal.

We will discuss your options for a retainer once your braces treatment has concluded. The staff at Winning Smiles Orthodontics will work closely with their patients throughout the entire orthodontic process. We are pleased to provide guidance on retainers to our patients from Washington, DC; Bowie, MD; Hyattsville, MD; Prince George’s County; Montgomery County; and Anne Arundel County.
