Custom made from either clear plastic or wires, retainers are non-invasive devices that keep your teeth correctly placed after realignment via braces or Invisalign.

Retainers can be removable or fixed, depending on factors such as your bite and willingness to wear something permanently.

Fixed retainers are more difficult to floss but keep teeth in place 24/7, while removable retainers allow you easier access for brushing your teeth but can be misplaced.
