Last week, I wrote a blog about the challenges of lifetime retainer wear to protect your orthodontic investment. I mentioned that 20-25% of patients don’t wear their retainers as prescribed. Here’s the list of reasons why some people struggle with this:

  • The retainer is uncomfortable.
  • I talk funny when I wear them.
  • I don’t like the way the wire goes across my front teeth.
  • I don’t want to take the time to get a new one.
  • I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a new one.

Our Coleman Orthodontics team has been researching and talking about ways that we could lessen the burden of keeping your straight, confident smile looking great for a lifetime. We’re excited to announce that we’ve found a great solution that addresses all these concerns!

First, how can we make retainers feel more comfortable, look better and be easier to talk with while wearing them? The answer is easy; clear (Essix) retainers. These retainers have been around for a long time. The hesitation we’ve had recommending them in the past is their durability. But with new technologies come better products. The orthodontic industry is no exception. The plastics that we have available now to use for Essix retainers are far superior to anything we’ve ever had on the market before. Now, don’t get me wrong, any retainer is going to wear down or break over time and will need to be replaced, sometimes as much as yearly. Anything in the mouth takes a beating. But we’re seeing these retainers now holding up as well as any other type of retainer that’s available.

Second, how can we make retainer replacement more convenient and overall more affordable? We’re excited to announce that we will be partnering with our lab, Retainer Club, to help solve these concerns. Retainer Club is an innovative service that allows you to easily order replacement retainers from an app on your phone, followed by FREE home delivery. You also will have the option of choosing a service plan that qualifies you for discounted lifetime retainers. What could be more convenient than that?

We’re excited about this new partnership! We believe that everyone deserves to have a simple way to protect their orthodontic investment of time and money. Go to Retainer Club or call our office for more information!
