Preserve Your Smile with Orthodontic Retainers at Quincy Street Dental

Following the removal of your braces, the journey to a perfect smile requires one final, crucial step: orthodontic retainers. At Quincy Street Dental, Dr. Megan Borak and our dedicated team are committed to ensuring your smile remains straight and beautiful. Orthodontic retainers are essential for maintaining the alignment of your teeth post-treatment, supporting the new position of your teeth as your gums, bone, and muscles adapt to the change.

Learn more about Essix Retainers

Retainers act as guardians for your newly aligned smile. Aligner-Style Retainers (Essix Retainers) offer a discreet option, these clear retainers are similar to clear aligners and are tailored to fit snugly over your teeth. They're crafted from impressions of your aligned smile for a perfect fit.

Retention Care Tips:

  • Removable retainers should be removed during meals and dental hygiene routines, stored safely in their case to prevent loss or damage.
  • Flossing with fixed retainers requires meticulous care; floss threaders are recommended for effective cleaning in tight spaces.

Maintaining Your Retainer:

  • Always store your retainer in its designated case when not in use and clean it regularly before placement.
  • A gentle brushing with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water is sufficient for daily cleaning. For a deeper clean, a mixture of distilled water with baking soda or a mild soap can be used for soaking, avoiding hot water to prevent warping.

Ensuring the longevity of your beautifully aligned smile starts with a commitment to wearing and caring for your orthodontic retainers as recommended. For personalized advice on retainer use and maintenance, schedule a consultation with Dr. Megan Borak at Quincy Street Dental.
