Essix retainers

Essix retainers are made of transparent resin material. They snugly fit the dental arch and when worn 12 – 18 hrs a day, they do not allow relapse movement of the teeth after the braces treatment.

This is a good alternative for people who do not want fixed ( bonded) retainers or when fixed retainers are not recommended for them and are not comfortable wearing standard removable retainer.

These retainers have to be remade after a certain time since they tend to lose their plasticity during routine wear.
