Victory Dental - Retainers

Keep your smile looking as beautiful and straight as the day your braces were removed - with a custom made Essix retainer from Victory Dental.

Orthodontic treatment has many benefits! Following treatment your teeth will be perfectly straight, you’ll also find eating much easier and more comfortable - especially if you had numerous gaps or severe misalignment issues.

Often the ability to clean your teeth properly is increased and you’ll see an overall improvement in the health of your mouth as a result.

Not only have your braces been removed (which is exciting in itself!) but also, with your new smile looking amazing, you’ll surely want to show it off at every opportunity.

However do be aware that, overtime, a straightened smile can start to relapse. Teeth can continue to move or may return gradually to their former positions. This could potentially ruin your beautiful new smile, undoing all that hard work.

While they were once considered more of an inconvenience than anything else (and perhaps with their importance slightly underestimated) retainers are now very popular and are also worn regularly by many celebrities who have had past orthodontic treatment.

Victory Dental can provide custom made removable Essix retainers to help keep your new smile looking great. Prices start from just £75.

As long as you continue to wear a well-fitted retainer there is no danger of your teeth doing something they shouldn’t!

Why wear a retainer?

Following any type of tooth straightening treatment it is highly recommended that you wear a retainer to help keep your teeth in their new position.

While your gums may feel strong, your teeth are actually set in soft tissue and bone that can be manipulated and moved quite easily. This is great for straightening them, but it does mean that some time is necessary to allow the gums to stabilize following any tooth movement.

Whether you’ve had your teeth straightened with fixed metal braces or removable plastic aligners the risks are the same. It is strongly recommended you continue the practice of wearing a retainer for life.

Many adult patients who’ve had orthodontic treatment in childhood are testament to the fact that teeth can revert slightly many years down the line. In fact, tooth straightening in adults has become increasingly popular as many of them seek to restore the smile they once enjoyed in their teens and twenties, but unfortunately have lost because they didn’t continue wearing a retainer.

How often should I wear my retainer?

Following orthodontic treatment your dentist will advise you regarding how often you should wear your retainer. Initially you will need to wear it frequently as the risks of movement are high. Normally this would just be at night although sometimes it is necessary for a patient to wear their retainer in the daytime too.

We know it’s not ideal, especially as you’ve finally got rid of the braces you’ve had for so long, but the best way to look at it is that you are helping to continue your orthodontic treatment in the best possible way, allowing you to benefit from your new smile for a lifetime.

Making your bespoke retainer

Do you need a retainer quickly? No problem at all! As we have the necessary equipment and materials ready on-site many of our retainers can be produced within just 24 hours, allowing you to collect and use them the very next day!

All retainers are made in our laboratory by our highly skilled dental technicians after taking impressions of your teeth. The process is quick, simple and requires no pain relief. These impressions are used to create a plaster cast which becomes a mould for your retainer.

When your retainer is ready you will be invited in for an appointment so that we can ensure it feels comfortable and that you are happy with the fit.

Discreet, comfortable and attractive

Essix retainers come in clear plastic for ultimate discreetness. Thanks to the superior quality and strong material, you can be assured of maximum durability and longevity. With a slim-fit and smooth feel, you’ll find your retainer easy to insert and remove. It won’t interfere with your ability to eat or keep your teeth clean.

When not in use, it’s important to store your retainer in a special storage box. This will prevent loss or damage and also help to keep it clean and hygienic. You should also keep it away from strong heat or direct sunlight as this could cause changes to the shape.

The flexible yet strong materials used are resistant to staining and odour, helping to keep your retainer looking and smelling great, however we would recommend regular cleaning with special disinfectant tablets to keep it fresh and free from bacteria.
