Orthodontic treatment can be a costly
and time consuming process so once
you’ve reached the end you’ll naturally
want to protect the results.

It’s crucial therefore that you are prepared to be diligent about wearing your retainer after treatment. When dealing with adult teeth there are no exceptions — everybody wears retainers after orthodontic treatment.

When you receive your retainer

  • Your retainer will be ready for you approximately 15 minutes after the removal of your brace
  • Your specialist orthodontist will take two impressions immediately following the removal which will be sent to the practice technicians who make the appliances then and there
  • Our principal dentist, specialist orthodontist Rob Slater, is a qualified technician and has personally trained the staff at One Devonshire Place to construct these appliances
