Enjoy your smile for years to come

Once your braces come off and we’ve unveiled your beautiful new smile, the important part has just begun - the retention phase. In order to help you keep those beautiful results you’ve worked so hard for, we will give you a free custom retainer at the end of your treatment.

Do I have to wear a retainer?

If you don’t wear a retainer after treatment with braces or aligners, your teeth will want to shift back to their pre-treatment positions. In other words, unless you want to start orthodontic treatment all over again, it’s important to wear your retainer as instructed.

Your retainer will be custom made to fit your new smile and hold it precisely in alignment. Even if your retainer is removable, you will be asked to wear it full-time at first. After Dr Dima approves it, you can then switch to night-time only wear.

Types of retainers we offer

BeClear Orthodontics offers two options of free custom retainers: fixed and removable retainers.

Our fixed retainers, or lingual retainers, are thin metal wires fixed permanently behind your upper and lower teeth to hold your smile in position. These are nice because you don’t need to remember to wear them, but they also require more work to keep clean.

We also offer removable retainers that look a bit like Invisalign® clear aligners. These paper-thin retainers are completely clear, so you don’t need to feel self-conscious about wearing them during the day. You can take them out to eat and brush and floss as usual.

Aftercare with Dental Monitoring

We keep your comfort and convenience in front of mind in all that we do - and that continues to your aftercare! We can use the Dental Monitoring app to check in with you remotely after treatment and confirm your teeth are staying in place.

All you need to do is download the app on your smartphone, send us occasional photos of your smile, and we’ll let you know how you’re doing! If we spot any issues, we can treat your smile straight away.
