The Retainer No-Brainer

With so many virtually undetectable options these days, more and more adults are looking into orthodontic procedures. Regardless of your chosen treatment-Invisalign, SureSmile or traditional braces-you’ll want your results to last. And to keep teeth straight, wearing a retainer is the way to go.

Foregoing long-term or even lifelong use of a retainer makes subsequent crowding almost inevitable. But if a retainer brings backs too many painful memories from adolescence, a permanent lingual retainer can also be useful.

A lingual retainer is a discreet alternative to a traditional retainer. It involves affixing a wire to the backs of the upper four (and usually lower six) teeth to prevent shifting.
