Retainers

Prosper Retainers

Orthodontic Aftercare

Once your orthodontic treatment is complete, your braces are off, and your smile is better than ever, you will need to wear a retainer to ensure that your teeth stay in their new position. At Bietsch Orthodontics, we offer our patients removable or fixed retainers to make sure that the time and money you invested in orthodontics is not wasted by keeping the teeth in their ideal positions. Our goal is to help all our patients to maintain a gorgeous, new smile, and retainers do an excellent job in providing this.

Call us at (972) 934-6222 if you would like to learn more about retainers or need a retainer replaced.

Types of Retainers

We offer our Prosper patients a variety of retainers based on your needs, including:

  • Hawley retainer – this is one of the most common types of retainers and is molded for the roof of the mouth and the backs of the teeth. Typically, Hawley retainers are made up of wires and acrylic that is molded.
  • Clear retainer – this option is similar to Invisalign aligners, which can be worn with less visibility and removed from the mouth very easily.
  • Fixed retainer – fixed retainers cannot be taken out of the mouth since it is bonded to the back of the teeth.

Retainer Procedure

Dr. Bietsch wants to prevent your teeth from relapse after braces and it may take some time for your teeth to adjust after treatment. He will discuss with you how long, how often, and what time of day you should be wearing your retainer (if it is removable). Of course, the number of your in-office appointments will decrease once the braces are off your teeth, but you will need to have regular check-ups with Dr. Bietsch as suggested.

What Are the Benefits of Retainers?

Invisalign Teen makes life with orthodontics so much simpler. There are ultimately zero food restrictions and teeth can be brushed and flossed as normal. Don't want your aligners in all your special photos? Take it out to snap your school or prom pictures. Anxious about playing in the big game with a sports guard and an aligner in your mouth? Keep it in the case until your activity is over!

Life doesn't have to stop for braces and with Invisalign Teen, you get the best of both worlds: invisible and removable.

Patient Experiences

Opinions We Cherish Most
  • “I chose to see Dr. Bietsch from a referral from a friend. I am so happy that I did. The entire consult was all about my son and never about the doctor. I was so impressed that I chose to see him myself for some orthodontic work.”

    - Amy
  • “We love Dr. Bietsch's office. It's very easy to find a qualified orthodontist, but more difficult to find the combination of highly qualified, and caring. I feel like going above and beyond, is just normal for Dr. Bietsch and his staff.”

    - Kelly
  • “I was walked through each x-ray, necessary procedure and plan to align a jaw, straighten teeth, and make sure both my children and I were going to be happy with the results. Very impressed.”
