Retainers

RetainersYou’ve worked hard for your beautiful smile, so let’s keep it that way! After your braces are removed, the next step is to keep the teeth in their new position, which is done with retainers.

Types of Retainers

Weber Orthodontics offers both fixed and removable retainers, which are recommended long-term to keep your smile beautiful and your bite healthy.

  • Hawley Retainers are removable, and made of hard plastic, with wires that wrap around your teeth.
  • Essix Retainers are removable, and made of clear plastic. They fit over your teeth, and look similar to Invisalign® trays.
  • Permanently Bonded Retainers are fixed. They are bonded to the back of teeth, and are not visible to others.
