I have completed my 2 yrs invisalign and been wearing retainers for 9 months. I feel soreness during the day so i just pop my retainers in for a couple of hours during the day ontop of wearing them at night. Is it common?
How much dod 2 years of invisalign cost as i think ill have to the same
Did you wear them full time at all? Or just nightly
@Nikki Csukas I wear my retainers every night now
What’s the best retainer for a person that grinds their teeth? I have seven more Invisalign trays to go, the last few I’ve been messing up because of grinding.
I want to know too
hi doctr..plzz add subtitle
Thank you for this very clear explanation. I would like to ask you also what you think of having also a Hawley retainer as an alternative for night time wear? Could it help to have over time à more natural positioning of teeth?
Damn You didn’t even blink once
I been on my vivera retainers for about 3 years! They yellow brah
Same here! What’s the best way to clean them
Use some hydrogen peroxide mixed with warm water, let them sit in there for about 15 min, then brush the retainers and (if you have it) use a water pick to blast away any remaining buildup. That usually does the trick for me.
You’re to clean them nightly. I clean mine twice daily. I’ve had my clear retainer for nearly one year. They still look clear!
How long can you use them ?
They’re very expensive, so I wonder that can I use them for lifelong time like permanent retainer ? If anybody would help me, I’ll happy.
Looks like the doctor didn’t wear his retainers. His bottom teeth are a train wreck.
Hi, can I ask you something? I noticed that when I bite down on my clear retainer I can see on some teeth that saliva bubbles moving inside the retainer (on the molars). Is that normal and because of the biting force? I am worried. Sorry my english is Bad I am from Germany 🙂 I am worried that my retainer doesnt work and cant go the ortho because of the Lockdown
I think that’s pretty normal. It’s because it has space left but that doesn’t prevent the teeth movement. At least that’s my experience.

No disrespect but what happened to your teeth.
just because you say no disrespect doesn’t make it any less disrespectful. I don’t see how your comment is relevant. No disrespect but you just seem like a prick, .
So it’s temporary….
should I just get bonding if I already had braces before
But never wore retainer? So I have some spaces not that that big
And some chips
my teeth have started to shift back with the fixed retainer
U should probably wear the other ones at night aswell like he said suggested
Boa123 i wear them day and night, take them off for a few hours to eat and they move lol
@Summer Star go to a 2nd dentist for opinion. My suspicion is your retainers aren’t tight enough
My dentist says I’d have to wear retainers full time for 5-6 years. Is that right?
mine said i’d have to wear them full time for the rest of my life.
Yep, that’s correct!
I’d go one better: every night for the rest of your life. And if you get a crown done down the line, get new retainers made ASAP. Not doing that was my mistake. Now I’m doing a course of Invisalign after having had braces 20+ years ago.
Doctor, I would like to ask, does the dental retainer after the treatment resemble the plastic from which Invisalign was made, or is it another material that is tougher?!
It looks exactly the same as the trays, but the retainer is much tougher.
Hello, I’m coming to the end of my Invisalign and I used to have a gap between my two front teeth as well as an open bite. Which would be the best retainers for me? I wore braces as a child and after 13 years a broken retainer during Covid meant that my teeth relapsed to its original state within a few months, so I am very aware that with gaps it’s extremely easy for my teeth to move back.
i’ve been wearing my removable retainers for around six months, and it still feels tight when i put them in every other night, i’m so done with them now :/
Wear them every night!
I do not recommend a fix retainer!
It horrible, the glue is not nice you can feel it.
How do retainers retain intrusion and extrusion movement?
Lost mine over a month ago
