Maintain Your Beautiful Smile
At Yenne & Schofield Orthodontics in Salem, Oregon, we understand the importance of maintaining the results of your orthodontic treatment. Retainers are an essential part of ensuring your teeth remain straight and in their proper position. We offer a range of retainer options to meet your needs and help you maintain your beautiful smile.
Types of Retainers
We offer several types of retainers to suit your preferences and needs. Our orthodontists will work with you to determine which type of retainer is best for you based on the type of orthodontic treatment you received and your lifestyle.
Fixed retainers, also known as bonded or lingual retainers, are attached to the back of your teeth using a special dental adhesive. They are typically used for patients who require significant orthodontic correction or who have a history of non-compliance with removable retainers.
Removable retainers are a popular choice for many patients because they are easy to clean and maintain. They are made of a clear plastic material that is molded to fit your teeth perfectly. You can remove them while eating or cleaning your teeth, making them very convenient.
Hawley retainers are a traditional type of removable retainer that has been in use for many years. They consist of a plastic base that is custom-molded to fit your teeth and a wire that wraps around the front of your teeth to hold them in place. Hawley retainers can be adjusted for a more comfortable fit and are very durable.
Clear retainers, also known as Essix retainers, are similar to removable retainers but are made of a clear plastic material that is nearly invisible when worn. They are easy to clean and maintain and are a great option for patients who are concerned about the appearance of traditional retainers.
Permanent retainers, also known as bonded or fixed lingual retainers, are attached to the back of your teeth using a special dental adhesive. They are a great option for patients who require significant orthodontic correction or who have a history of non-compliance with removable retainers.
