Removable And Non-Removable Retainers

Posted on 6/19/2023 by Singing River Dentistry Madison
Removable And Non-Removable RetainersRemovable retainers are simple to use. They are often worn overnight and removed in the morning. Regardless of your retainer schedule, you will have access to some retainer-free time. However, if you forget to wear your removable retainer, you will not receive the full benefits of teeth retention.

Another potential benefit of a detachable retainer is that you may easily remove it to brush and floss your teeth, which is more difficult with a permanent retainer. Although detachable retainers can be highly effective, they are typically not as effective as permanent retainers, mainly if they are not worn as advised.

Continual Retainers

For patients who want to "get it and forget it," permanent retainers are, without a doubt, the best option. You will not need to worry about daily retainer scheduling once your permanent retainer is in your mouth because it will be permanently bonded to your teeth.

A permanent retainer often provides longer-lasting outcomes for teeth straightening than a removable one because teeth start to shift as we age. You must remember to add it because it is already there! Temporary retainers frequently go unused because they are misplaced or left behind when traveling.

Flossing is a problem with permanent retainers. Some patients find it more challenging to floss while wearing a permanent retainer, but we can show you quick and efficient ways to do so.

Due to the lower teeth being smaller and more prone to shifting, some orthodontists may advise a mix of the two, such as a removable retainer for the top teeth and a permanent one for the bottom ones. The most crucial thing to remember is that wearing your retainer as instructed is crucial. No matter what kind of retainer you use, as long as you heed our orthodontist's recommendations, you will achieve the most satisfactory outcomes.
