Retention

When we remove your braces, we will begin the retention stage of your treatment. The retention phase lasts for a minimum of 24 months. Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, so follow through with the hard work you’ve put in so far. Remember to remove your retainer before brushing, and brush your retainer before placing it back in your mouth.

CPOL Retainer

The CPOL retainer is similar to a spring Hawley retainer, but it has a clear plastic labial bow with a front wire that is shaped specifically for your teeth for better retention. It is specially made from impressions of your teeth so that it fits snugly and comfortably in the roof of your mouth and the acrylic framing keeps your teeth in perfect position. We offer custom colors, decals and glitter so you can personalize your retainer.
