Retention

Maintain Your Beautiful Smile With Orthodontics In Summerlin & Las Vegas

Once you have completed your primary treatment of orthodontics in Summerlin, Dr. Truman will remove your braces. Then begins one of the more challenging aspects of orthodontic care: the retention phase. As you have finally achieved the beautiful smile and straight teeth you’ve been longing for, the last thing you want to do is not adequately maintain it. Teeth tend to quickly try and shift back to their original position once braces have been removed. Our Las Vegas and Summerlin orthodontics office works hard to supply you with correctly fitting retainers, combined with quality care to ensure your teeth stay perfectly aligned. 

Hawley Retainers

One of the most common types of retainers is the Hawley retainer. It is comprised of the sturdiest materials to ensure your teeth stay in place, including metal wires and a durable acrylic base. This removable retainer is custom-designed for your teeth so it fits comfortably and snugly. The Hawley retainer comes in a variety of colors and patterns for personalization. 

Fixed Retainers

One of the best ways to ensure your lower teeth stay in place is to utilize a fixed retainer. These bonded lingual retainers are permanently cemented to the inside of your lower teeth. It’s comfortable, convenient and easy to maintain. Just remember to brush it gently every time you clean your teeth. These retainers are long-lasting and durable, but if the wire breaks for any reason, give our office a call immediately for an emergency appointment.

 

Essix Retainer

The Essix is a clear retainer that is almost invisible. It fits over the entire arch of your teeth without any metal wires and is completely removable. The Essix retainer is strong, cost effective, and comfortable to wear.
