Types of braces: Retainers

Retainers are usually fitted after the teeth have been aligned. There are three types of retainers.

Removable braces can be used as retainers. These can be worn all the time to start and then later at night only.

Clear plastic moulds can be made to hold the teeth in the corrected positions. These are usually worn at night only for between six and twelve months.

Fixed retainers are small, thin wires attached to the inside surfaces of the front teeth. These are usually left in position for about twelve months but sometimes longer if it felt that the teeth may start to slip back.
