Fixed Retainers for Patients in Downers Grove, IL

At Downers Grove Orthodontics in Downers Grove, Illinois, we understand that the journey to a perfect smile doesn't end once braces come off. Fixed retainers are a crucial element in ensuring your teeth maintain their new, ideal positioning long after the orthodontic treatment.

Why Choose Fixed Retainers?

Unlike removable retainers that can be taken out for meals and cleaning, fixed retainers are bonded directly to the back of your teeth. This ensures consistent pressure and positioning, reducing the likelihood of teeth shifting back to their original spots. These retainers are discreet, sitting behind your teeth, so they're nearly invisible to the naked eye.

Benefits of Fixed Retainers

  • Long-term stability – They provide constant support, ensuring your teeth stay in place.
  • Low maintenance – No need to remember to put them in or take them out; they're always working.
  • Aesthetically pleasing – Being placed behind the teeth, they don’t detract from your beautiful smile.
  • Durable – Made from high-quality materials to last for years.

Care and Maintenance for Fixed Retainers

Even though fixed retainers are low maintenance, it's essential to ensure they stay clean. Regular flossing using a floss threader and brushing will keep both your retainer and teeth in excellent condition. Additionally, routine check-ups with Dr. Balakrishnan will ensure that your retainer remains firmly in place and is doing its job.

Your journey with Downers Grove Orthodontics ensures not only a picture-perfect smile but also the tools to maintain it. Fixed retainers are a testament to our commitment to your long-term oral health. Trust in our expertise, and let's keep that smile brilliant for years to come!
