Clear Retainers Pensacola FloridaClear Retainers

Clear retainers are transparent, removable retainers that fit over the entire arch of teeth. Similar to Invisalign® trays, clear retainers have no wires. They are inexpensive and easier to wear. They can be used for other treatments as well, including tooth movement and bridges.

Adjustment Period

Congratulations! You've gotten your braces off! The next phase of treatment is just as important so your new beautiful smile will last a lifetime! Once we remove your braces, we will move into the retention stage of your treatment. Maintaining the results you achieved during the treatment phase is key to the success of the entire orthodontic process. Your retention phase will last for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you've put in so far. Be sure to follow the instructions provided by your orthodontist.

It will take a few days to acclimate to talking with retainers. Your mouth may produce more saliva than normal in response to the foreign object in your mouth. To get used to your retainer, practice reading, speaking, and/or singing out loud.

Wear your retainer full-time, except when you are eating or brushing your teeth. After approximately a year, you will be able to begin wearing your retainer only at night.
