Studies show that without retainers straightened teeth can gradually shift back towards their initial position often as quickly as after just a few months. This is a common occurrence with all orthodontic treatment, but is one that can easily be overcome. Wearing Invisalign’s Vivera retainers after your Invisalign treatment has finished means you’re keeping your teeth in their new position, protecting your smile and investment.
Vivera’s proprietary material is 30% stronger than other leading clear retainer materials, which helps to maintain your smile. It also reduces the risk of the retainer cracking or breaking.
Invisalign Vivera retainers are custom made for you with the same state-of-the-art technology used to make Invisalign aligners. Because the retainers are custom made from an impression or scan of your teeth, you will benefit from a precise fit and therefore more comfortable fit.
All full price Invisalign treatments by Metro Orthodontics receive 3 Free sets of Vivera retainers and a custom Vivera case to keep the set you are using in.
You will receive individual instructions regarding wearing your retainers, however as a general rule they should be worn nightly for the first 6 months and then 2 nights each week.
