After you’ve undergone orthodontic treatment, no matter if it's metal braces, clear braces, or Invisalign, you’ll move onto the final step of orthodontics – the retention phase. The retention stage is used to ensure that your teeth stay in their newly-straightened positions and don’t shift back into misalignment. After all, you wouldn’t want all that time and hard work you put in to go to waste. As your source for orthodontics in and around Syracuse, Fayetteville, and Fulton, NY, we at CFSS Orthodontics are glad to offer an assortment of retainers for you to choose from during retention.
The great thing about fixed retainers is that they’re unlikely to break or come loose because they’re directly attached to the back of the teeth. If a repair is needed for this type of retention, we may re-apply an adhesive. This service will typically cost $75 to $150, though new appliances may cost an additional charge.
Removable retainers are easy to use, comfortable to wear and allow for simpler brushing and flossing. The removable retainers that we offer in our office are as follows:
- Clear Invisalign retainer
- Replacement Invisalign retainer
- Hard plastic retainers with a wire across the front teeth
- Aesthetic retainer to replace missing teeth
Depending on the type of retainer you need, the fees range from $155 to $600 per retainer.
