What are Retainers?

When your Orthodontic treatment is complete, after achieving the smile you have always dreamed of, it's important to keep your teeth and bite in this ideal position.

But this doesn't happen by itself. We generally recommend wearing a combination of fixed retainers and removable retainers to ensure your teeth do not shift.

Removable retainers are plastic covers for your teeth, like Invisalign aligners, that hold your teeth in position after the aligners have done their work. They're made of a stronger material Invisalign aligners and are typically only worn at night.

On the other hand, fixed retainers, or permanent retainers, consist of a comfortable and discrete wire that's custom fitted and permanently attached to the back of your upper or lower 4-6 front teeth, if your bite permits.

Regardless of which solution your teeth require, you can be sure you're getting the best with Aspired Smiles.

Are Retainers important?

Retainers are discussed with you early on in the beginning of your Invisalign treatment, as they are such an integral and important part of any Orthodontic treatment's long-term success. Without retainers, teeth can move back to their original position, undoing all the hard work that went into fixing them. Regardless of whether you're getting braces, Invisalign or another brand of aligner, you'll have to wear retainers once the Invisalign process is complete.

Invisalign Vivera Retainers

Vivera retainers are the official Invisalign retainers. Clear and virtually invisible. Vivera's are custom-made by Invisalign using the same state-of-the-art technology. Vivera's are offered in a set of three to provide you with additional retainers to keep your radiant new smile. Vivera retainer material is at least 30% stronger and twice as durable as other leading clear retainer materials.

Sport Mouthguards

Protect your teeth on the field with a personalised sport mouthguard. With built-in orthodontic support, they're the only way to keep your teeth in place, and in your mouth, while playing sports.

Our mouthguards are custom-fit and designed made to protect your teeth from injury whilst playing sports. Investing in a custom made mouthguard will prevent tooth fractures, loss of teeth and even trauma to the lips, tongue and cheeks. Dental injuries are very common when playing sports without the protection of a mouthguard.

The Australian Dental Association recommend professional custom-fitted mouthguards as they will protect your teeth more effectively in comparison to over-the-counter guards. Book an initial appointment with us today for mouthguard fitting.
