What Are Retainers?
Once you are done with your orthodontic treatment, you will likely need to get a retainer to maintain your results. Your retainer will protect the investment you've made — in time and money — by keeping your teeth in their new place while your gums and jaw stabilize. To serve the demands of our patients, Concerned Dental Care in New York City, NY offers many high-quality retainer options, like a removable or fixed retainer. When deciding which retainer is best for you, our dental team will guide you along the way and explain all your options. For more information on retainers and other orthodontic treatments, contact your nearest location in New York today.
What Type of Retainers Are Offered?
At Concerned Dental Care, we offer our patients three different kinds of retainers based on each patient's needs: a clear, fixed, or Hawley retainer. A Hawley retainer (the most frequently used type of retainer) is made up of molded plastic, wire, and clasps that may be removed. A clear retainer is inconspicuously worn just like a clear teeth aligner and can be removed from the mouth quite easily. A fixed retainer cannot be taken out of the mouth since it is secured to the back of your teeth on one or both arches.

Do I Need A Retainer?
Retainers are advised for everyone as soon as they finish an orthodontic treatment. Even though your teeth are set in their new position, a retainer can help keep them in place while the rest of your mouth adapts. A retainer is ideal for younger patients who are still waiting for all their permanent teeth to come in or while their jawbone is still forming.
What is the Process of Getting A Retainer?
When your orthodontics are taken off your teeth, you can start your retainer process. We'll make an impression of your mouth and send it to a dental laboratory. Once your retainer is returned about 1 – 2 weeks later, we will schedule an office visit. At this appointment, we will make sure that your retainer is comfortable before you leave. We will also discuss when you have to use your retainer as well as how to clean and store it.

What Can I Expect After I Get My Retainer?
How long you have to use your retainer will vary. It is usually suggested to use your retainer until all of your permanent teeth come in and when your jaw is done growing (normally around 20 – 25 years old). With good maintenance and routine inspections, your retainer can last for a very long time. Over time and with standard wear and tear, your retainer might have to be replaced. We will let you know when it should be replaced. Meanwhile, you should practice daily cleaning and safely keep your retainer if not being used. If your retainer has been lost or damaged, contact our office to receive a new retainer.
Are Retainers Covered By Insurance?
A retainer could be included as part of your dental therapy. During your consultation, we will go over your retainer options and price estimates. If you are using dental insurance, we'll contact your supplier to determine if any of your expenses are covered, then calculate your out-of-pocket costs. We accept many payment methods, including medical financing, to make getting a retainer easier for our New York City and surrounding area patients.
