Invisible retainers are comfortable to wear and keep your new smile straight

Retaining your new smile

Invisible and fixed retainers for after your brace treatment

Retainers are used to hold your teeth straight as a follow up to your fixed brace treatment. They reduce the risk of your teeth going crooked again and will need to be worn for a minimum of one year. However, we always advise our patients to wear their retainers on a long term basis, as teeth can move throughout your life.

Invisible Retainers

At Cleveland Orthodontics, we provide “invisible” retainers for all of our patients. These are comfortable to wear and are barely noticeable if worn throughout the day. Alternatively you can just wear them at night time. It is extremely important that you wear your retainers as we advise. Otherwise, your teeth may not stay straight.

Fixed Retainers

Some patients prefer fixed (bonded) retainers in addition to removable retianers. This option can be discussed at the start of treatment.


If you lose or break your retainers, it is important that you telephone the practice as soon as possible so that we can arrange an appointment with you to get them replaced.

There is a charge for replacement retainers and we will let you know what this is when you ring for your appointment.

"After just 15 months I am amazed and very pleased with the smile I now have. I no longer hide from the camera and am more than happy to show off my brilliant smile and my self confidence in general is much higher. I only wish I had done it years ago."


"Now the brace is off after only 16 months – and I don’t know where the time has gone. For me the result is remarkable. It’s hard to believe how much movement can be achieved. Don’t think about it as long as I did. Make that appointment, you won’t regret it."


"The whole experience was great, the staff were very friendly and my appointments were always quick and on time - so I was able to fit them in around work. I now like showing off my smile and my self confidence has improved. My only regret is that I waited all those years before I plucked up the courage to do it!"
