Removable Retainers

Removable Retainers Overview

Removable retainers are used to retain the finished cases and maintain space. Our retainers are made with wire (chromium cobalt, the industries highest quality wire) that exceeds the class of standard stainless wire and retains excellent memory and strength. You can incorporate multiple parts such as hooks, screws, pontics, habit cribs, and springs with all of our retainers. All of our retainers are fabricated using high tech acrylics to give the patient a wide variety of colors and designs.
