Fixed Retainers

These consist of a thin stainless-steel wire, which is permanently bonded behind the front teeth.

We usually fit your fixed retainers as soon as your braces are removed.

When you have this type of retainer you must try to be careful when brushing it and ensure you clean it thoroughly.

Like the other two types of retainers these serve the same purpose to help keep the teeth in the same position that they have been moved to.
