What Is a Retainer?
Retainers are unobtrusive plastic trays that fit in the mouth. They are designed to help “retain” the positive changes that have been created through the use of orthodontic technologies like metal braces or InvisalignⓇ clear aligners. Retainers are often made of materials like acrylic with perhaps a few small metal parts that attach to teeth. Retainers can be customized to fit comfortably in the mouth.
