After your orthodontic treatment is completed, it is time to maintain that beautiful smile. Unfortunately, teeth have a tendency to move back where they started from if we don’t hold them in place. That’s where retainers come in. If you would like to keep your new smile beautiful forever, retainers will need to be a part of your life.
At Lafayette Family Orthodontics, we take retention very seriously. We will work with you to figure out which retainer option is best for you.
Your first set of removable retainers are included with your orthodontic treatment. We offer two types of removable retainers: Essix Retainers (Clear Vacuum-form) or Hawley Retainers (Old school metal wire with acrylic).
*Bonded Metal Wire behind the teeth (Fixed Retainers) can be used at an additional cost.
Each of these three retainer options has their pro’s and con’s. We will help you decide which option is best for you and your smile during the course of treatment. To see the other services we offer, click here!
