Orthodontic Retainers at

The Cambridge Specialist Orthodontics Practice

All orthodontic treatment needs to be retained.



Two main types of retainers

Bonded Fixed
Clear Removable

We offer the full range of Orthodontic Retainers.

Having a 24/7 emergency Service means that if you have a problem then you can call us ANYTIME.

We can usually provide retainers the same day

Who should wear Orthodontic Retainers?

Almost every patient who has had orthodontic treatment needs to wear retainers. If you do not wear these retainers then your teeth will go crooked again, and the hard work in wearing the braces will be lost. You should only go ahead with orthodontic brace treatment if you are also happy to wear retainers to keep the result at the end.

Why do I need to wear retainers?

There are two reasons for wearing retainers:

•Teeth tend to want to move back towards their original positions. This is called relapse.
•As we get older our teeth may start to move unpredictably, often showing some crossing over and increased in crowding.

By wearing retainers long-term we can reduce these age changes in the position of the teeth. The longer you wear retainers, the longer you can keep your teeth straight.

What are retainers?

Retainers are fitted at the end of orthodontic treatment after the braces are removed. They can be either removable or fixed onto the teeth. There are different types of retainers. The choice of retainer is affected by a number of different factors and your orthodontist will explain which retainer is best for you. Sometimes you will be recommended to wear more than one type of retainer to reduce the chances of the teeth relapsing.

Reasonable Fees and Payment Plans

The Cambridge Orthodontic Practice aims to be as open with our fees as possible. We like patients to have as much information in advance and make sure there are no surprises.

Orthodontics is usually quite expensive and we realise that patients make their decision on costs as well as quality.

We also recognise that all the local Orthodontic Practices offer high quality care so it makes sense to "Shop Around"

A major reason for choosing us is that we offer late evening and weekend Appointments at no extra charge.

We will normally at least match another Orthodontist's Orthodontic Treatment Plan Costing.

Also because we are a "One Stop" Dental Practice we can offer the full range of treatments and patients avoid the extra costs of going to various diferent practices.

We offer easy options for payment including Interest Free Credit
