Retention (holding in position) of teeth is mandatory after orthodontic treatment to prevent relapse. There are two different types of retainers:

  • Essix Retainers – similar to a very thin mouth guard, they are made from a very strong plastic and must be worn nightly to prevent relapse, i.e. the teeth moving to the original position prior to orthodontics.
  • Bonded Retainers – a very small metal wire that is bonded into place, hidden away behind your teeth. These have the advantage of being permanently fixed in place.

Talk to your dentist Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, Dublin 4  about which retainers are right for your needs.
