To ensure your newly straightened teeth stay straight, once you have completed Invisalign treatment we will issue you with a retainer. This is perhaps the most important, but often forgotten, phase of treatment.
Retainers come in two forms: fixed and removable.
- Removable retainers look like an Invisalign aligner and sit over your teeth like a mouthguard. They help to keep your teeth in position as they settle. After about three months of wearing your retainer, you can just wear it at night.
- Fixed retainers consist of a thin metal wire attached to the back surface of your teeth. These keep your teeth in position and will remain there for as long as you want your teeth to stay straight!

Invisalign aligners are a registered medical device, you should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
