Retainers are an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Without them, your teeth will 'relapse', which means they will gradually return to their original state. The only way to ensure your teeth remain straight permanently is to use your retainers as advised by your orthodontist.
There are two main types of retainers; fixed and removable. Fixed retainers are often called wire retainers, and are fixed to the back of your teeth. Removable retainers are almost identical to the clear plastic trays used in certain treatments, such as Invisalign.
Of the two, our specialist orthodontists recommend removable retainers to our patients. Plastic, removable retainers are easy to wear, and unlike fixed retainers, they can protect all of the teeth from relapsing. They can also serve multiple purposes, such as a tray for tooth whitening treatment.

Orthodontic treatment can be carried out by either specialist orthodontists or dentists in practice. Often, dentists in practice will refer their patient to a specialist orthodontist. This is because they have more advanced training in identifying complications and dealing with unexpected problems during treatment.
A specialist orthodontist is a dentist who has undergone at least three additional years of training. They often undergo additional training throughout their career to keep up with the latest technological advances in orthodontics. Specialists will work in practice and at dental hospitals.
Choosing an orthodontist who has plenty of experience is advisable so that you can have confidence in the result of your treatment. The initial consultation with an orthodontist is a good time to ask questions about their experience and qualifications.
At Specialist Orthodontist Harley Street, we have one of the most qualified orthodontists in the UK, with over 30 years of experience. You can visit our website to find out more about our practice and treatments.
