Dental Retainers

Retainers are the most effective method of ensuring teeth stay in their original positions after braces have been removed. Once braces or Invisalign treatment is complete, patients must then wear a retaining device to ensure the teeth stay in their new position. At Faces & Smiles, there are several different types of retainers that are available.

 

1. Vivera Retainers £300 – 3 x sets i.e. upper(3) and lower(3) (triple the value)
These retainers are made from Invisalign material. This is a wireless solution with a digital retention system called Vivera.  These are very accurate and can even be made to the exact same position of your last aligner if you are undergoing Invisalign treatment.  They are cut extremely accurately around the gum margins. Invisalign also provide a box for the safe keeping of your retainers. See below for more details.

2. Essix Retainers £100 for upper and lower x1 (uk lab made) – £50 each (per arch)
These are manufactured in a UK lab and a box for these can be bought at reception for £1.

 

3. Hawley Retainers £150 each (per arch)
These are removable retainers made from acrylic and metal.

 

4. Lingual Retainers £120 each (per arch)
(only holds 3-3 so would ideally need an additional essix removable retainer to wear at night to hold back teeth in place)

Retainers are once again extremely important; the Orthodontist will decide how long they must be used. The greatest treatment failures occur during this retention phase, because patients may believe that everything has already been corrected. Therefore, we need cooperation by patients and their parents: retainers must always be worn as prescribed and not carried inside a pocket or in their box!

 

 

 

Vivera Retainers maintain the beautiful smile you’ve worked so hard to create.

Vivera Retainers come as a set of custom clear trays with the following key benefits:

Vivera retainers are stronger then other clear retainer materials.  Retainers need to be strong enough to maintain tooth positions.  They can even correct certain types of relapse, up to 0.25 mm per tooth!  That means that if you’ve forgotten to wear your retainer and your teeth have shifted, the retainer can be used to move the tooth back.

Vivera retainers are comfortable.  They are made with the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign aligners using 3-D digital imaging and fabrication technology.  This creates a strong retainer with an extremely precise fit and smooth finish that grips firmly and feels comfortable.
Vivera retainers are clean and clear.  Clear retainers can get dull, dirty, and cloudy over time.  Because they come as a set, once you’ve worn them out you can easily switch to the next set.

Vivera retainers are convenient.  The same goes to losing or breaking your retainers.  It’s as easy as opening the next package.  Once you’re enrolled in our Vivera Retainer program, we can have replacements made without an office visit or additional records.  Your new retainers can be shipped to you even if you’ve moved away.

Vivera retainers are great for patients who have finished their Invisalign treatment because they fit just as well, if not better then the Invisalign aligners.

Vivera retainers are also orthodontists favourite option for patients finishing treatment with metal or ceramic braces.
