After you straighten your smile, your teeth can try to move back to their original positions. A retainer keeps your teeth in place so their new positions become more permanent. Meason Orthodontics offers same-day retainers for the convenience of our valued patients.
Types of Retainers
There are fixed and removable retainers. Fixed retainers are bonded to the inside of your front teeth. Some patients like them because they can’t get misplaced. However, they can be difficult to keep clean and they do not help the back teeth stay straight. Removable retainers, which can be used for top and bottom arches of teeth, are removed for eating and brushing your teeth. Shortly after finishing your orthodontic treatment, removable retainers should be worn all day and night. You can drop down to only wearing your retainers at night once your smile has settled.
No Wait for Your Retainer at Our Office
At some dental practices, you have to wait several weeks for a retainer. Meason Orthodontics is pleased to offer same-day retainers! We first take digital impressions of your new smile. Then, our SpringRay Pro Dental 3D printer creates your custom retainer right away.
We Offer Several Financial Options
Retainers can cost several hundred dollars. If you have insurance that pays for orthodontic treatment, your plan may pay for part of the retainer. We accept plans from many providers like Aetna, Ameritas, Cigna, Delta Dental, Sun Life, Guardian, and many more. We also accept monthly payment plans through CareCredit, and offer in-house financing.
