Whether you are thinking of starting treatment, halfway in treatment or wrapping your treatment up, it is a great time to start thinking about what type of retainer is best for you! Next Level Orthodontics offers three different types of retainers.

It is good to point out that the clear retainers (which are called Essix retainers) are included in your treatment with Dr. Smith! In addition to the inclusive retainers, we also realize that these types of retainers need to be replaced often, so Dr. Smith and his team have developed an Essix retainer insurance program to help you save not only your smile but your money, on a long-term basis. Secure Smiles is an Essix/clear retainer insurance program with many benefits.

The bonded retainers, which are commonly known as “permanent retainers” (although nothing in orthodontics is truly permanent) are bonded to the back of your upper and/or lower teeth and are not visible when you smile.
