Schacher Orthodontics' retainer solutions provide you with non-invasive methods of keeping your smile beautiful and healthy.
Retainers are custom-made devices, usually made of wire or clear plastic, that hold your teeth in position after surgery or teeth realignment. The bone and soft tissue surrounding your teeth continue to shift after orthodontic appliances (braces, etc.) are removed. Consistent use of a retainer prevents any undesirable movement that could necessitate re-treatment.
Schacher Orthodontics’ offers two types of removable retainers—Clear and Hawley. Clear retainers are the industry-preferred option. They are made of thermoplastic material and are intended to appear “invisible” while being worn. The more traditional Hawley retainers use a combination of plastic and wire. They are just as effective as clear retainers but are far more obtrusive. In rare cases, Schacher Orthodontics uses fixed, or bonded wire, retainers which are glued directly to your teeth. But with advances in science, Dr. Schacher recommends you get any fixed retainers removed and replaced with removable ones.
All Schacher Orthodontics retainers are made using impressions of your teeth. They recommend wearing the retainer all the time for one year following the removal of braces. After one year they suggest wearing the retainer only at night. Because of their materials, retainers should avoid temperatures exceeding 115 degrees (F°). They should also be regularly cleaned with a toothbrush and cleaning solution to avoid plaque build-up.
Even after the retainer has been made you must continue with follow-up examinations. This is so wisdom teeth growth and the development of the muscles around your teeth can be monitored and, if necessary, dealt with. Every 6-9 months is the recommended frequency of visits, with X-rays being updated every one and a half years.
