Teeth have a tendency to shift with or without a past orthodontic history. Alexandria Orthodontics provides several options to keep your teeth straight.
- Hawleys: are classic retainers are customized so they click and hold on to your teeth to keep them from drifting. They can come in many colors and designs (click here to view designs).
- Invisible retainers: Also called essix or vacuformed retainers, these retainers are retention trays similar to Invisalign which can be fabricated on the same day in office.
- Invisalign Vivara Retainers: special customized retainers are formed fitted to the teeth and offer increased comfort and durability. Four sets of Vivera retainers are included which provide convenience and protection from relapse if a retainer is lost.
- Fixed retainers: Also called permanent retainers or lingual bonded retainers, this retainer is bonded to the back of the front teeth to keep them from shifting.
- Reset retainers: Retainers can be fabricated to move single teeth which have very mild movement.
