Here at Smile Hub Dental Clinic, we provide Essix retainers to prevent teeth from moving. Essix retainers are removable appliance which are made of transparent plastic so they are not as noticeable as other wire retainers. Over time our teeth are continuously moving due to contact and pressure and can move to different positions in our mouth. An Essix retainer keeps the teeth in the desired position after orthodontic treatment. An Essix retainer can also treat minor corrections or slightly uneven teeth. Essix retainers are a great way to keep straight teeth without feeling self-conscious as they are clear and not noticeable. They are thin and removable so they should not cause any trouble in your daily routine and lifestyle. If an Essix retainer becomes uncomfortable it could mean that your teeth are moving and you may not be wearing the retainer enough so it is important to wear it more to reduce any discomfort and prevent teeth changing position.
