Invisalign Retainer Huntington BeachAfter any orthodontic treatment, teeth can shift back out of position unless properly managed. Patients who have been treated with traditional braces often use metal retainers, which use a thin band to hold teeth in place. Invisalign retainers offer patients another alternative. Our expert in Invisalign retainer in Huntington Beach can help you decide if Invisalign retainers are right for you.
Invisalign retainers are often used after treatment with Invisalign, but they can also be used with patients who used traditional wires and brackets. They are substantially stronger than other types of clear retainers and can not only help maintain tooth position but also correct minor relapse. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign retainer expert also prefers Invisalign retainers because they are less likely to become deformed over time, unlike several other types of retainers. Your treatment can be adjusted to meet your needs whether you wear your retainer full-time, at night or just a few hours a day.

According to studies, failing to wear retainers can result in your teeth shifting back towards their initial position. If you are a candidate for Invisalign retainers, our expert in Invisalign retainer in Huntington Beach will take dental impressions or scan your teeth to create four custom retainers. Wearing your retainers exactly as prescribed will keep your teeth in the proper position and protect your investment.
Good dental hygiene was essential during your orthodontic treatment, and it continues to be important now that your teeth are properly aligned. Brush at least twice a day, and floss daily. If you wear your Invisalign retainers all the time, remove them to eat, and brush and floss before replacing them. Clean your aligners regularly with the Invisalign Cleaning Crystals or a soft-bristled toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste.
