Retainers are used during orthodontic treatment because they hold the teeth in place while they adjust to their new positions and prevent relapse, which means that there is no need for future orthodontic treatment
Wear A Retainer After Your Invisalign Treatment
Are you one of those people who don’t like using a retainer every night? Or maybe you do, but its inconvenient to sleep with it in your mouth? The consequences of not using an invisalign retainer are inevitable, because without it you’re setting yourself up for relapse. It is important to keep in mind that your teeth are likely to shift back to their original position without wearing a retainer. This could lead to the need for braces again, or worse, tooth decay and gum recession.
Not Just Teenagers, Everyone Can Get An Orthodontic Treatment
Retainers are not just for teenagers. In fact, many adults may need to wear a vivera retainer after orthodontics to help their teeth stay in their new positions. Retainers can help with problems such as:
- Jaw injuries (ie, jaw wired shut or broken during an injury).
- Damage to gum tissue or bone (ie, wisdom teeth removal surgery).
- Tooth loss from decay or trauma (ie, falling off your bike).
- Crooked teeth resulting from genetics, poor dental care habits as a child/teenager, or trauma to the face/mouth area (ie, severe car accident leaves you with permanent damage to your mouth and jaws).
Types Of Invisalign Retainers
There are two kinds of retainer that Invisalign patients can choose from in Coral Gables. The first type is a fixed retainer, which is what you’ll get after your braces come off. It’s permanently attached to your teeth via metal brackets that keep it in place and prevent the teeth from shifting back into their original position.
The second kind of Invisalign retainer is a removable one that you can take out when eating or brushing your teeth. This allows you to eat foods such as hard candy, popcorn kernels and nuts without worrying about breaking your braces or getting food stuck between them (which could create an infection).

Easy To Use For The Perfect Smile
Clear retainers are easy to use and discreet. They are small enough that you can wear them with confidence, yet strong enough to keep your teeth in place.
Clear retainers also make it easier for you to maintain your smile without having to worry about cleaning and maintaining the retainer. Since they’re clear, no one will know when you have a retainer on your teeth!
With clear retainers, if anything gets stuck between your teeth, all you have to do is remove the retainer so that whatever got stuck in there can be removed. This makes it even easier for these retainers since they’re small enough that they don’t get in the way during eating or brushing!
