Retainers are custom made appliances designed to help you hold the position of your teeth after your braces have been removed. While removable retainers, which are mostly worn at night, are very commonly used, there are also fixed retainers which are used to hold the newly straightened teeth in place. The fixed retainer is a thin wire bonded to the backside of the upper or lower front teeth. The type of retainer used is usually based on the individual case.
