Once the braces come off the teeth, that beautiful new smile needs to be retained. The retention stage of treatment usually involves a clear removable Essix retainer. These types of retainers are simple to take on and off, strong, and very unnoticeable.
For some patients, however, we make Hawley retainers. They are also removable and made to custom fit like the clear Essix retainer, but made out of acrylic and wires. The acrylic on this type of retainer can be personalized with fun patterns and colors.
