If you’ve recently completed orthodontic treatment through Invisalign or traditional braces, you’ll need to protect your investment with a retainer. Dr. Eric M. Meyer, DDS allows patients to choose from a removable retainer or a fixed retainer. A fixed retainer, also known as a bonded retainer, is applied to several teeth to help them stay in place. The type of retainer you choose will depend on your needs and preference.
Though a removable retainer is most common, patients don’t always remember to put them in. Meanwhile, a fixed retainer takes away the thought of remembering or forgetting to wear your retainer because it is bonded in place 24/7. A fixed retainer may take a little extra work to keep clean because it consists of a single wire that stretches across the back of several teeth. If you struggle with cleaning your fixed retainer, Dr. Eric M. Meyer, DDS can help you improve.
