A retainer is a custom-made device that helps maintain the new position of your teeth. If you don’t wear a retainer as directed by your orthodontist, your teeth may slowly move back toward their original position.
Invisible retainers are made out of a clear plastic or resin material, making them less visible than traditional metal retainers.
Hawley retainers are made up of a metal frame surrounding the teeth and a clear plastic or acrylic shield covering the teeth.
A fixed bonded retainer is a wire that is permanently bonded at the backside of your teeth.
Your teeth may slowly drift back to their original position without a retainer.
Clenching or grinding your teeth can cause further dental problems down the road.
Wearing a retainer helps prevent the tongue from thrusting forward between the teeth, which can cause your smile to look uneven or overcrowded.
By keeping the teeth in their correct position, retainers reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

The general recommendation is to wear a retainer for at least 12 hours per day for most people. However, it’s essential to speak with your dentist to find out what’s best for you. Some people may need to wear their retainer all the time, while others may only need to wear it at night.
The type of retainer you get depends on how much wear and tear it will see, how often you will need to wear it, and how comfortable you feel. Talk to your dentist about which type of retainer is best for you.
