Retainer Installation In New York

Retainer Installation In New York

Retainer Installation in New York is an orthodontic procedure that is done directly after the braces are removed. Retainers can be worn for years after the braces are gone, and in some cases are required for an indefinite amount of time, sometimes leading to permanent retainers as the best course of action.

Who Needs Retainer Installation in New York?

All patients are eligible for retainers as soon as their braces are removed. The retainers, if used correctly, help maintain the effects of the braces while the gums get used to the teeth’s new position.

What are My Retainer Options?

There are currently four kinds of retainers that are recommended to patients based on their circumstances, habits, and budgets.

  • Bonded retainers: These are sometimes known as fixed retainers and are wires that are permanently bonded to the incisors, not to be removed. These are most effective and appropriate in the cases where the patient’s aligned teeth are at risk of being reversed.
  • Zendura: These retainers are made with polymeric material, designed with the patient in mind as an invisible alternative to wire retainers.
  • Hawley: This is the most common retainer form, as it is made of metal that surrounds the entire row of teeth to keep them in place.
  • Essix: This is a vacuum formed retainer made of PVC material, aesthetically to the effect of Invisalign.
