What is the Purpose of a Retainer?
A dental retainer helps to hold teeth in place after orthodontic treatment, such as braces. It helps to keep your teeth in the new, corrected position after they have been moved to the desired location. The retainer also helps to prevent your teeth from shifting back to their original position. You can help maintain your new smile and improved bite by wearing your retainer as prescribed.
What are Same-Day Retainers?
At OMI Orthodontics, same-day retainers are a popular option for those seeking a fast and easy way to protect their orthodontic progress. These retainers are made from highly durable materials; you can wear them immediately after the orthodontic treatment. They are typically made from a transparent plastic material, which is comfortable and easy to wear. Unlike traditional retainers, same-day retainers are custom-fitted for each patient and can be adjusted to fit the patient’s mouth perfectly. Customization ensures that the retainers will fit snugly and remain in place throughout the day. Additionally, same-day retainers are easy to clean and maintain than traditional retainers, making them an excellent choice for those looking for a quick and convenient solution to keeping their teeth in place.

Clear Removable Retainers
Clear removable retainers are an orthodontic appliance used to help maintain the alignment of the teeth after braces have been removed. They typically consist of clear, plastic trays that fit precisely over the teeth and are held in place by the lips and cheeks. The retainers are custom-made to fit each patient’s teeth, and they can be removed and re-inserted at will.
Removable clear retainers are desirable because they are virtually invisible when worn and are much more comfortable than traditional metal braces. As the retainers are removable, they also make it easier for the patient to clean their teeth, allowing them to brush and floss normally. The retainers also will enable you to eat whatever you want without worrying about getting food stuck in the braces.
Clear removable retainers are also very affordable, making them accessible to most people. They also require very little maintenance and can last years with proper care. Because of these benefits, many orthodontists recommend clear removable retainers to their patients after removing braces.
Same-Day Bonded Retainers
A same-day bonded retainer is an orthodontic appliance to maintain teeth’ position after dental treatment. It is typically placed on the back teeth and can be made of either wire or clear plastic. The retainer is usually cemented to the teeth, and the position of the teeth is fixed in place.
The retainer prevents teeth from shifting and helps maintain orthodontic treatment results. The advantage of a same-day bonded retainer is that it can be applied immediately after treatment and does not require follow-up visits. This retainer can also help reduce the likelihood of relapse, which can occur when the teeth are not adequately supported.
