Retainers


Vacuum Formed Retainer

After a fixed appliance has correctly positioned the teeth a custom made clear retainer is provided. This will keep the teeth in the desired position if worn.

Mr Chadwick advises 3 months of full time wear and then 9 months of night time wear. After a year of retention the wear can be reduced further, however if you wish to guarantee the result the retainers must be worn on an occasional basis indefinitely.

Hawley Retainer

After a fixed appliance has correctly positioned the teeth a custom made Hawley retainer is sometimes provided. Worn at night this will keep the teeth in the desired position.

Bonded Wire Retainer

Teeth can move back after orthodontic treatment. A bonded wire retainer will hold them in place permanently. A wire is bonded to the back of the front lower or upper teeth. The bonding material is cured with a bright light.
