Lost or damaged retainers are one of the most frequent crises we face in connection with our patients who have previously undergone orthodontic treatment.It is common procedure to give fixed bonded retainers, removable retainers, or a combination of both to all orthodontic patients.
Retainers must be worn permanently because they are essential to lowering the risk of orthodontic recurrence.
You should seek immediate dental care from your orthodontist if you lose or damage your fixed or detachable retainer. If not, there is a chance that your teeth could move in a dangerous way, obstructing your progress and possibly harming you.
Every patient of an orthodontist is in charge of maintaining and wearing their retainer as prescribed by their orthodontist. Emergency dental care is frequently necessary if your retainer is missing or broken. Depending on the damage, our orthodontists may need to take fresh impressions in order to make new retainers.
If your teeth haven't migrated all that much, fixing broken retainers may not be difficult. Please get in touch with Smile Hub Dental Clinic, the top clinic in Dublin right away if you need an emergency retainer replacement.
