Your final orthodontic result is dependent upon your retainers, so make sure you continue to follow through with the hard work that you've put in so far. Teeth are very dynamic; they move and shift throughout life whether or not you have had orthodontic treatment. Retainers are placed once your orthodontic appliances/braces have been removed. They are normally worn full time for several months until Dr. Parigini instructs you to wear them only at night.
It is also important to continue your good oral hygiene habits when your braces come off. Please schedule an appointment to see your general dentist to schedule a cleaning and show them your great smile!
If your retainers are lost or broken, please call the office immediately as new impressions may be needed and a new retainer may be required. We will provide the first set of retainers. If additional retainers are needed, due to patient non-compliance, loss or breakage, there will be an additional charge.
Always bring your retainers with you to your appointments. If there is any damage or breakage, we will be able to determine whether or not a repair can be made.
Please contact us with any questions! We are happy to help!INTRODUCING MEMOTAIN® RETAINERS FOR ALL CASES
Memotain Retainers offer the best fit and maximum comfort. By using state-of-the-art technology and digital planning Memotain ensure a retainer that is tailored precisely to meet the individual requirements of every patient.
Thanks to the patented CAD/CAM manufacturing process, Memotain retainers are more precise than a handcrafted lingual retainer could ever be. Memotain retainers ensure accurate positioning, especially in connection with the upper and lower jaw, and thus allow greater long-term wear comfort and reduce the risk of biting off the device. Moreover, the long-term, compliance-independent stabilisation of the position of the teeth results in fewer incidents of undesired tooth movement and consequently fewer follow-up treatment appointments.
