Spring Retainers

A Spring Retainer is an excellent appliance for minor tooth movement, or as a final finishing retainer after full ortho treatment. In the case of tooth crowding, interproximal enamel  reduction will be necessary. Spring Retainers can be used on both the maxillary and mandibular arches.

This is a basic mandibular Spring Retainer. It is our most requested Spring Retainer design.

 When one or more incisors are in a lingualized position, it may be necessary to use a Double Spring Retainer, which has an anterior wire-aided acrylic segment to allow for better initial seating of the appliance and better end results.
