Types of retainers
At Hess Orthodontics, we have types of retainers for every patient’s unique lifestyle. The retainer options we recommend will depend on your personal smile retention needs. We offer permanent and removable retainers.
The cost of retainers
Wearing a retainer is essential to protecting your new smile alignment. Every 3-5 years, you need to replace your removable retainer, which can run up to $600 or more at some orthodontic practices.
At Hess Orthodontics, our Lifetime Retainer Program allows you to get free retainers for life, even if you move away! Just pay $800 now, plus the cost of future copays.
We can teach you everything you need to know about your retainers
Wearing your orthodontic retainer after braces allows you to enjoy a lifetime of radiant smiles. When worn and cared for consistently, all types of retainers are effective in helping you keep your beautiful smile results.
When coming to your retainer check-ins after initial treatment, make sure you bring your retainer with you so we can check in on your progress. If you’ve broken or lost a retainer, get in touch with us as soon as possible so we can fix or replace it. If you’ve participated in our Lifetime Retainer Program, we will replace or fix your retainer at no cost.
At Hess Orthodontics, we’ve helped many people across West Coastal Florida get the smile of their dreams. If you have questions about smile retention, call us at 813-645-4377 or email us now, or schedule your complimentary consultation online today!
