What retainers do?

Orthodontic retainers play a crucial role in maintaining the alignment and integrity of your newly corrected smile.
You may need one or a combination of retainers explained below.

Maintain your perfect smile that you've worked hard to achieve with reliable and effective retainers. Broken or cracked retainers can allow teeth to shift, potentially leading to the need for unnecessary and  costly realignment or refinement.
Retainers need to be checked regularly to ensure they continue to function effectively. If you wear retainers and plan to visit us for a dental check-up, please bring them along so the dentist can assess their condition and make necessary recommendations.

All retainers are meticulously manufactured by registered specialist orthodontic laboratories to ensure the highest quality standards are maintained, however, retainers are subject to wear and tear, and their condition can be influenced by various external factors, such as bite force, or using inappropriate cleaning agents. As a result, we do not provide a guarantee for wear and tear, damage or loss.

Yes, over time, your retainer may need replacement due to wear and tear, changes in your dental alignment, or if it becomes lost or damaged. The lifespan of a retainer varies; removable retainers typically last around 12-18 months, while fixed retainers can last several years with proper care. We recommend regular check-ups to assess the condition of your retainer and decide if a replacement is necessary to ensure your teeth remain in their ideal position.

We have a very low rate of retainer breakage due to the strict manufacturing protocols at our practice. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a warranty on retainers because numerous factors out of our control can contribute to their damage. This includes excessive bite force or accidental loss or damage, such as being misplaced or chewed by pets. While our retainers are crafted from durable materials meant to endure normal use, they are not indestructible against extreme conditions. We recommend treating your retainer with care and adhering to our usage guidelines to reduce the likelihood of damage.
