Orthodontic retainers in Sugar Land and Rosenberg, Texas

After you finish orthodontic treatment, you’ll have stunning results you’ll want to keep for years. A dental retainer is a device that holds your teeth in their new positions. Using a retainer after clear aligners or braces treatment will enable you to enjoy your smile for a lifetime.

Garrett & Boyd Orthodontics offers retainers for patients of all ages. Learn about the different types of these devices, how to care for them, why they matter for orthodontic retention and our Lifetime Retainer Program, which provides free retainers for life!

What are retainers?

Dental retainers prevent your teeth from shifting after they are in new positions. If you wear your retainer and follow your orthodontist’s instructions, you can stop your teeth from returning to their original places. If they shift too much, you may need orthodontic treatment again. Your family orthodontist will pick the best type of retainer for you, depending on your needs.

How much do retainers cost?

Wearing a retainer after braces or clear aligner treatment is an essential part of ensuring a long-lasting smile. Retainers and retainer replacements can run $600 or more per set at other practices. However, Garrett & Boyd Orthodontics offers a Lifetime Retainer Program that will allow you to enjoy free retainers for life — even if you move away. You will only pay a one-time flat fee!

Caring for retainers

Taking care of your retainer will ensure it lasts for years and keeps your smile healthy. Only store your retainer in its case — do not put it in your pocket, a lunchbox, a napkin or anywhere else it can be lost or damaged.

Follow your family orthodontist’s instructions for wearing your retainer and enjoy your new and improved smile!

Do you have to wear retainers forever?

During the first six months – 2 years of wearing a removable retainer after braces or clear aligner treatment, you’ll need to wear your retainer as much as possible. Typically, after this, you’ll only be required to wear it at night.
