Orthodontic Retention – Why is it so important?

After orthodontic treatment retention is vital and your teeth take a while to adjust to their new position so whether you have had a fixed appliance or a removable appliance wearing retainers is the key to keeping your newly improved smile.

Following my recent six-month smile treatment, I decided to invest in Vivera® retainers.

So why would I recommend Vivera® retainers?

Although lab made retainers are great (I had no problem with mine) Vivera®  retainers are more of a long term option. You get three sets and they are made of a stronger material which not only ensures the teeth stay in position they also have less chance of cracking or breaking which is crucial in the first few months as these are worn for 22 hours a day!!

These retainers are custom made by taking a digital scan of the teeth and sending the scan data electronically to Align who manufacture the retainers via an automatic process. Using this digital pathway means no more messy impressions, quality of scan data ensuring accuracy and speed! There is a much quicker turnaround time.

I have had only three days of wearing mine and I love them, I actually feel alien when I don’t have them in.

After a long treatment to me they were the perfect investment.
