Bonded retainers

Bonded retainers are placed behind your upper four front teeth and your lower six front teeth to keep teeth in their correct alignment after your braces are removed.

  • Upper Bonded Retainer
  • Lower Bonded Retainer
  • When your braces are removed upper and lower retainers are bonded to your teeth, so care must be taken not to eat any hard or sticky foods, which may cause either appliance to come loose.
  • Keep the area behind the upper and lower front teeth (the area where the wire rests) clean with your toothbrush and toothpaste and by using your Superfloss. A tartar control toothpaste such as ‘Colgate Total’ may be useful in reducing tartar build up in this area.
  • The lower retainer will generally be left in place until wisdom teeth erupt into the jaws, or are removed. There is always some movement of teeth throughout life. If you are able to keep the teeth and gums clean around your bonded retainers, you can choose to keep the retainers on permanently.
  • If either retainer comes loose from your teeth, contact our office immediately to have it re-bonded.
  • The fee for orthodontic treatment covers general maintenance, repairs/replacement if required of your bonded retainers for three years.
